I appreciate the work that you're doing to document the VM system,
but I'm wondering if it isn't more appropriate to put this sort of
documentation above the functions themselves. These interfaces
are private to the VM system anyway, so documenting them
separately is just asking for those documents to get out of date.
I'm wondering if your effort would not be better spent improving
the comments in the source code instead. dillon has already done
a good deal of that, but there is still some dyson code out there
that could use some work in this area. Just a thought...
