However, I still think a doc string of over 280 lines

understanding it is that there are conflicting objectives in the

trying to explain something potentially complex.

It wants to look complex,  written with lot of redundancy for
people who can't understand concepts, and with lots of 'cons'
and 'car' for people who can't read lisp.

The message between the lines is clearly: "You don't want to
use this if you know what you're doing."
