API documentation

This may seem like a silly question, but how proficient in a programming
language (say, C++) should an employer expect of a tech writer who
produces API docs? And on the flip side, how proficient -should- you be?

I've written software in several languages, including C, but not C++, and
there is a substantial difference. I may have an opportunity
to document a C++ API, but am nervous about what the potential employer
may be expecting.

Any other API doc writers out there?
