If the current docs are completely wrong then I'd say revert the code to
correspond to docs, at least remotely. The new code should be considered
not ready for release in this case.

I doubt though that the old docs are completely useless. I don't think we
had to completely rewrite Boost.Parameter-related code in other libraries,
which means the old interfaces and their docs are still relevant.

In any case, releasing a library with no docs is not acceptable.
