Well, depending on the developer, you might do a little research on user
interfaces and give him some options, backing them up with references,
statistics, whatever. Regardless of whether the doc is for the average
user or for "experts" like developers, it needs to be as streamllined
and as coherent as possible. Too many disconnected choices become
confusing. A couple overlapping menus for each process might make it a
bit better (and justify that big, blank screen).

Good luck,
