And the answer is...

That is the definitive answer.

There really isn't anything else.

The "market" for such a document seems to be small, and then there is the
issue of who would maintain it. Now, if somebody were to volunteer to write
and maintain such a document I'd be happy to put it in the distribution.

Would such a document really be all that useful?  It seems to me that the
codebase is pretty small, and it should not be all that hard to figure out.

I would much rather see us clean up the header files and split out some of
the functional pieces of the code into separate .c files.
