[Bf-committers] Blender C-Cookbook

   I'd be willing to write documentation on the areas of the rendering code
that I'm working on.  Besides, that might help me pay my way to SIGGRAPH. :)
   Of course, this all depends on how much time I'll have to spare.  Durring
the summer I'll have plenty of time, but before then most of my time is taken
up by school.

   I do like the idea.  It would allow more people to dive into the code more
   On the down-side, however, the code is constantly changing, so the
documentation could, potentially, get out-dated quite rapidly.
