It would be great if you could add to the docs now that the system is
in good shape, more info about the various things you'd been putting
in the wiki.  I honestly lost track of much of that, but I'd like to
ensure that our docs keep up again with the funcitonality.  Originally
I was fanatic about not implementing anything without docs and for a
while we ended up with the lyx/wiki split and much
undocumented/scattered material. Let's do our best to catch up now,
with inspiration from the matplotlib guys (their new docs are at 475
pages and counting!).

Cheers,
