Yes, it will. It's something we've talked about many times, but it
has unfortunately always come down to a time/resources issue -- no one
has the time or people to do it (and keep the document up-to-date with
the ever-changing code base).

You might want to talk to the docs sub-project -- their first goal was
to make user-level documentation, but theyv'e gone kinda quiet over
the last month or three. Regardless, they may have some good opinions
about documentation format, technology, etc.
