The problem is, as someone wiser than me --Edmund Weiss, I think--has said:

"If it's hard to document, it's hard to use."

So every time I get a developer to change the software so that it is easier
for me to document, I'm also doing our users/customers a favor. And maybe,
if I do that part of my job well enough, they won't even need to open my
silly manuals. (What a life!)
