Sorry, no. If we don't invest energy in documentation, development will 
stop, because:
- it will be harder and harder do understand things in the code without 
up-to-date documentation,
- no one can use code without documentation, so people will slowly stop 
using our code.

Having said that, users who complain about the lack of documentation can 
always help getting things better by *writing* some documentation about 
what they find out, and contributing it back, either by sending patches 
to existing files or by using the wiki.
