If it's not obvious, we're pausing briefly in the documentation effort
to wait for A6. We're stuck on a few fronts that should become
slightly clearer when we get a better idea of how subroutines (and,
more importantly, their parameters!) work, so it's a good place for a
After A6 comes out, and the design team has had a momentary breather
and can answer our questions, we can start back up in earnest. (We
still need decisions on how certain things are stringified, for
Nums and strings are looking good. Still have some holes, but I think
we know where they are.
We still need content for the other scalar types (Ref, Code, etc.) I
expect these sections will be fairly short overviews, not as detailed
as what we've been doing, because they require knowing about other
stuff. If someone wants to have a go at them, let me know.
After scalars are done, we need to describe Arrays in excruciating
detail -- there are still some interesting issues there. I've got a
rough outline that I'll try to dig up and post.
