Some of it, probably.  But most of that stuff is inappropriate for the
manual.  We have in several files large commentaries that provide
overview of the design and implementation of various features.  For
example, the beginning of xdisp.c and coding.c, the overview of w32
subprocess support in w32proc.c, etc.  I was thinking about a similar
overview in comp.el.
