So, are there any pending doc changes that need to be made as a result
of this thread?  (IIUC, it was _either_ the functions should be added
to __all__, _or_ the module docstring needed to be changed, and since
I see no objections, I presume Travis added them to __all__, and thus
no doc changes were/are required - correct?)
