Despite the Smiley, I consider that typical Debianism decidedly
un-funny. To be able to write docs, one needs to understand the
software. To understand the software, one needs (a) to read the docs,
(b) to talk to the developers or (c) to have written the software.

Undocumented software doesn't get used.
