But let's not jump into doing that just yet... perhaps Brett's listing
will attract some champions willing to document these orphan modules.
I'd really rather not give up on documenting a module unless we're
forced to... it's tantamount to giving up on the module itself!

In the future, of course, no new modules should be accepted without docs.
