imho, the problem is common for any language and it's just because
most of programmers don't like to write comments. in my own program,
comments/code ratio is about 1:1 and i, after 2 years of development,
still understand it's every line :)  just compare yi and lambdadot
with two best commented libs i've seen - base and MissingH
