Having the same information in multiple places is not that
great. On the other hand, changes in the postgresql API will
force pandora to be adapted. I would advise not to add import
libraries - these should always be autogenerated. But that's
just a suggestion.

This is probably not working right. I lost the overview which
documentation is generated when and where. Henrietta does *no*
documentation generation, but there is a cronjob by Ivan that
converts eggdocs, I believe. In short: the chicken maintainers
are quite confused and badly coordinated regarding the documentation
