I don't see why not. But whilw we take this very seriously and so 
release only when a phase is done, it is a free-time based project. 
Therefore, while we will definitely do so... I can't commit it will be 
very soon.

Much like other coders, while we appreciate documentation.. being very 
busy theorizing on what we already did will take some motivational coffee 
or a free evening. Comparing ourselves to other services... well, maybe 
some magazine will run a comperative testing. :)
