You've not convinced me why I should use your library and not write
some ad hoc code which would be "good enough".

You've not convinced me why I should use your library and not an
alternative, including one written in Python or PHP.

At the front of your docs, you need to have me convinced by the end
of page 2 that there is no better library than yours, including on
other languages. Evidence such as an excellent literature review
covering alternatives and benchmarks between your code and
alternatives are steps in the right direction.
