Part of the problem, perhaps, is the licensing of the documentation.
If I were, for example, to correct the errors in the manual, I
wouldn't be allowed to make it available on a web page, for example.
I wonder if Timothy would be willing to loosen the license a bit.

Oh, I agree, it is very usable; still it'd be nice to have updated
