FWIW, while I suck both at writing documentation and at forcing myself
to write documentation, I'm in favor of being more strict
w.r.t documentation.  But in many cases, code is installed in
a non-definitive way, so it's convenient to install the code first, then
fix up some of it based on user's feedback and only later write the doc.
That saves us the time of documenting the intermediate state.

This is linked to our "linear history" workflow.
