you are absolutely correct and your comments welcome.  I'm not sure  
that documentation would only take a couple of hours, though ;)  And  
since I don't get paid to do it, its not that high on my list.   
However, that being said, I have been thinking about this for quite a  
while.  I'm going to try to get a wiki set up for ka-Map as that  
would be the main source of obtaining documentation and posting FAQ  
and their answers.

Thanks for prodding me on this.  I promise to try to do something  
about it :)

One thing that would really help me in putting this together is to  
have others share their experiences on developing applications, where  
they had problems and what types of things they would like to do.   
That would help me focus on providing the most useful documentation
