[wp-hackers] PHPDoc and state of the Codex

Well, maybe the question is whether we can expand the PHPDoc, for the 
important functions, so that the PHPDoc has all the detail that the 
current func/template doc pages have. It should, if that level of 
detail is useful. I think the main thing missing from the PHPDoc is 
working examples?

The other question is whether people could find functions on the 
phpdoc site. I didn't think the browsing was very intuitive, on first 
glance (like, what do all those links across the top mean?), and I 
don't think there is a search function.
