... no need to come down on the guy for stating his opinion mate ;-)
There's always a cost-benefit analysis to be considered in these cases.
Clearly it would be nice to have Perl specific docs, but you weigh that
against the cost of someone having to invest the time & energy to do
that and the fact that people *can* struggle through with the C++ docs now.
I agree with you that it probably _is_ worth the effort. Johan
disagrees. He's entitled to. And I don't deny your right to disagree
with him either, but no reason to make him feel his views are invalid :-)

That's cool. Hopefully if a bunch of people can contribute a little it
won't be the horrible slog some people fear it would be.

I think this has still gone unanswered...
Would a wiki be the easiest way to coordinate people on this? Or would
that be too unstructured?
By the way, have y'all seen the doxygen-based wxWidgets docs, new for 2.9?
Pretty nice ey? There seems to be a bit on their wiki about the process
of using doxygen. Maybe it could be an option for wxPerl. Of course,
it's another technology to have to go and familiarise with before
actually /doing/ anything :-p
