Quite understandable ;-)

Definitely. In some respects the documentation is more important than the code.
See http://www.boost.org/more/writingdoc/index.html. You should probably
consider using Boost.Book: http://www.boost.org/doc/html/boostbook.html
Make sure the docs are complete enough that people can easily evaluate the
design of the library. But also remember that the design may change, so trying
to perfect the documention too soon could end up wasting some time.
