I find it agreeable that there always be documentation for exported

In my undergrad years my least preferred instructor liked to say:
"If the code and the documentation doesn't match both are wrong."

And my favored prof would say:
"In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice they aren't."

This is, in a nut shell, why I don't see testing as a great way to
"document" intended function behavior.
