Or something.  This is really an area where one needs to make a large
inventory of what is there and behaves in what manner, and then design a
mostly coherent and useful theory about it, document it, and make sure
that everything matches that documentation.  At the moment stuff follows
no obvious principles and almost makes sense if you don't look at too
many things at once.

Which is poison for further development and actually explaining to
people how to use stuff.
