another case of misplaced metrics."

Perhaps it's just a question of interpretation, but when I read
"quality docs are *as short as possible* [emphasis mine]," I
don't interpret it as "short is always better"; rather, I take it
to mean that a good document contains all of the information that
is necessary, and no more -- it's complete, but not needlessly
long.
