[Bf-committers] Blender Hackers Guide

If it worths or not is totally dependent by personal point of views.
Someone consider "documentation" (developer's doc and user's doc) an 
integral part of a software package.
GCC, for example, has a developer's guide (it describes all GCC 
internals, back/front-end interfacing, how to write a front-end with a 
toy language as an example).
Blender sources are growing very fast (in size and complexity). Having 
an hacker's guide is always better than having nothing.
The Blender user base is big because there is a (good) user 
documentation. So, from what I can imagine, it could be the same with a 
developer guide.
Many people would be interested in hacking blender but they don't have 
the time to dive theirself in the sources just to understand how to 
write something in a buffer. Having a good hacker's guide, IMHO, would 
be a major step for Blender development.
Just my thoughts.
