For me personally, the reason I didn't submit any review, that I'm not
completely understand the purpose of the library. The documentation
(as few mentioned) lacks motivation and general description. So how
can I review the library, if I can't understand what the library is
trying to solve and how. I can't say for others, but for it is the
reason. I suggest that even if documentation can't be updated during
formal review, that the author will give a little more extended
explanation here, at mail list.
