You misunderstand. Johan was making a comment about priorities; he
feels that efforts would be better spent elsewhere. Not that efforts
to improve the doucmentation shouldn't be made at all.
I think I disagree with Johan that the wxPerl API documentation
shouldn't be translated from C++ to Perl. But I respect and value
(and pretty much agree with) his opinions about what other areas of
wxPerl documentation need more urgent attention.
