If you do (good luck!), I hope you might find a bit of time for less
terse documentation, adding some expository text about the module
in general above the brief per-function descriptions, and ideally
a few code snippets illustrating usage.

Many a library, and I think this one among them, has documentation
that is much too anaemic.
