Yes I agree the code is brilliant. But in my judgment it is not written 
to be maintainable.

The documentation structure has wanted a rationalization for a long 
time, and many people do make excellent improvements. My position is 
that a formal planning and implementation process (coupled with a 
codebase review) would greatly benefit the documentation base.
