Thanks for working on this. I'm considering a module for using libgit2
from Emacs, but passing data structures around and the creation, storage
and disposal of long-lived data (sessions, etc) looks a bit daunting.
Some documentation would help a lot.

The documentation on that file is scant, to say it lightly. We need high
level descriptions of the APIs, with examples, if possible. Then, a
chapter on techniques and recommended strategies for creating and using
modules that reflect common C API designs. Whithout that, the real job
is not creating a module for libfoo, but figuring out how emacs modules
are supposed to work.
