My guess it it is a pile of work. Our current docs are really inconsistent
between one another, and that probably wouldn't fly in a book. OTOH, we
probably have to make a lot of stuff consistent if we really want to see it
But I'm skeptical that the amount of work will be overwhelming except for
someone (Nico? Matt? Jeremy?) who has done it before and knows the ropes.
