I'm putting some effort into this area at the moment, but I'm a
marathon runner not a sprinter (tm) and also trying to work it out as

Pierre, if you aren't able to find the time for this, then it might be
most productive (for you) to review the docstrings as I work on them.
That way you're just checking that the documentation doesn't lie or
miss any subtleties.
