Yeah, instead of thinking for future, fix all the documents later and
disallow any useful search now. Please, we have this same discussion
every time a shader or something like that is added. Stop with the
dumbification, we are not trying to sell the same product than others
with a cooler name, do we? It is a diservice to the user that care,
and no win for those that do not care. If that is the official policy,
please tell me.
We should not have to worry. Do it right the first time, specially if
as hard as doing it wrong.
