  He writes:
  I feel that it would be helpful if there was a little bit
  of standardization in the layout/content of the documentation.
  A lot of the documentation implements similar ideas (one minute
  tutorials, introductions, reference sections), but each individual
  libraries documentation has the earmarks of the authors.
