  3. Sorry, completely unrelated to the topic of the article. Is the author related to Imre Lakatos, a hungarian philosopher of science? That dude was rad, did some great work exploring the structure of knowledge!

  5. Thanks for a thorough, well-written article.  An additional resource that I find essential for a complex API is diagrams.  If it’s object-oriented, include class heirarchies & class dependencies.  For any public data structures, provide diagrams showing containment and dependencies.
