From what I understand (I haven't had a chance to look at the code yet),
mini-srfi-1 is supposed to be for internal use only; not for user code.
This allows us to keep the number of features to a minimum and means we
don't have to worry as much about error situations like invalid arg types.

So, no documentation necessary unless you're arguing we should create
documentation for the internal API, which I would agree is a good thing
but we don't have any at all yet either way.
