This sounds like an excuse for programmers not to document their programs.
Probably the best arrangement would be for documentation to be a
collaboration between the programmers and the power users.
But I feel strongly that to overcome the original point in the thread,
many app developers need to give more attention to the documentation, and
indeed the user interface, and a little less to adding that "nice new
exciting" (and undocumented) feature.
