I agree, but would add that #1 has a correlation to #3. I tried porting 
a board over waaay back in the v1 days. With the limited information I 
had because of #3, it never became a success. I've stayed on the list 
because I'm quite interested in this area, but without proper #3, I'm at 
a real loss as to how to proceed on any project, as I don't fully 
understand some of what is going on the lack of #3 is meaning that I 
can't actually be a developer most of the time.
