Something quite high-level I think, say between one sentence and two
paragraphs. The constants and weave parts are one sentence, and that's
enough. For large modules like stats or sparse I'd say one paragraph on
status (what chucks of functionality are/aren't tested or documented, where
are improvements needed) and one paragraph on future plans that developers
have or that have been discussed on the list before.

That tends to be maintained less well, can't be included in the refguide
and can be easily spammed. Those are also reasons why we'd like to move the
website from wiki-based to Sphinx-generated.

I thought so.
