Definitely.  I've never bothered fully documenting
Data.GraphViz.Attributes.Complete fully solely because there are so
many attributes, and at best I'd just be copy/pasting stuff from the
upstream docs.

As I add more "user-friendly" options to Data.GraphViz.Attributes, I'm
starting to provide more specific comments regarding usage, etc.

Basically: if I find a specific attribute to be useful with some
corner cases or usage tricks where it's useful, I add documentation.
I welcome anyone sending me patches (or even a chunk of text via
email) about specific attributes to help flesh it out.

Well, it just takes the middle-man out of the loop.  The upstream
documentation is sometimes a little scarce about what all the
attributes do, and playing around with them usually ends up being more
