[wp-hackers] Codex function page proposal

I've spent the past couple of days working on a new style for the 
function pages on the Codex. I did a lot of research on different 
documentation sites. Eventually, I found that the PHP Function Reference 
<http://us2.php.net/manual/en/funcref.php>, has what I consider the most 
straightforward, intuitive function documentation style.

In order to see how the PHP style would work on the Codex, I created a 
new function reference rough draft to try it out. My results can be 
found here <http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Chrisbliss18/wp_cache_add> 

For those that don't know why I'm doing this, I'm trying to get a 
standard format that can be used for all functions in order to make 
using the Codex more consistent and creating/editing pages quicker and 

With that in mind, I'd like to get feedback on what everyone thinks 
about this format.

What do you like and dislike about it?
Would this format make using the Codex easier or more difficult?
Would this format make adding/editing the Codex easier or more difficult?
