I think this is a valid point. I'm *all* in favour of documentation, 
particularly in-line. I think it's an excellent thing.

Presumably it wouldn't be that hard to strip it out for the "released" 
version of WordPress? So if you want the documentation, grab the code 
from svn. If not, grab the ZIP and get a nice light download.

This would require support from the core devs, packagers, etc.

Cheers - Callum.
