I remember finding a couple of mistakes from copy/pasting and typos
but otherwise I think the structure is good.
I'll make a PR to fix those.

I think it would be nice to have full of a properly written simple
module as an example. Perhaps my tutorial could be a start. I know the
makefile is not portable but it's something.

Also Chris Wellon has written 2 posts about how he used modules. It
provides a good feedback, I'd suggest reading those (I think he wrote
them *before* you wrote the docs):


In the second one in particular he uses unix signals as a way to do
async communication from a module function. I think it's really
interesting. It reminded me of the discussions we had elsewhere with
Tom Tromey about adding a way to push special events in emacs event
queue to do something similar.
