If you wanted to help with the documentation of the stdlib, one thing 
that needs to be done is run doctest over the examples. See
for an example where the examples were not properly ported (two 'b' 
prefixes need to be added). Of course, there are other errors to be found.

More contributions from additional contributors are welcome!
