Agreed.
One of the reasons I've been a bit hesitant to submit pull requests for 
features is that creating the doc files has been a pain, undocumented, 
and the only editing tool is outdated, incomplete, and buggy (did I miss 
anything?). The new format is a breath of fresh air... or in my part of 
the world, rain after a long drought.
