for my part, i've always felt that it's this first point of
carol's that's been missing from the docs.  the functional
overview is very important:  as a developer, you're asking me to
implement a bunch of new API functionality simply to make a
simple program (which may already be working well in most other unix
environments) functional.  i'd like to be sold on the concept
first, before having to do a bunch of work for no (apparent) benefit
to me or my program.
