But developers are not always good writers. Our Will Robertson has 
produced a great manual for fontspec, but some TeX developers who have 
written manuals would have done better to recruit someone else to do it 
for them. A developer's duty is to write well commented code, and to be 
willing to work with writers of documentation to help them get it right.
