Thanks a lot for this important documentation work.

If you want me to document some functions you're not sure you
understand, please tell me which.

Should it be a release blocker, though? Lack of documentation for
exported functions is not a regression.

PS: I'm slightly disappointed you felt more comfortable using perl
rather than CL for those scripts. :-)

PPS: my ASDF3 paper was accepted at ELS 2014!
I already improved the paper much from the feedback, but more feedback
still welcome, especially for the extended version of the paper. Said
extended version can also provide background information or copy/paste
material for the manual; conversely, parts of the manual could be
removed and replaced with references to the paper.
