But that's what I wish I had: things that exist but that aren't so  
scattered around ;-). The Codex actually is pretty helpful, if you  
read through and follow required reading recommendations. There are  
things that do not exist, such as documentation for certain functions,  
hooks/filters (I think, though I should probably first find an example  
before shooting my mouth off).

There are some things that just take time if I want to do them the  
right way... like right now, I am trying to figure out how some of the  
Comment Administration actions seem to respond AJAXily (e.g: approve/ 
unapprove) and I am not at all sure how that's done. I want to add  
some additional comment actions (which act via AJAX) and I can code  
all that up quickly if I just implemented the AJAX query/response for  
those actions (using jQuery perhaps, with clues from the corresponding  
Codex page). But perhaps I am overworking? Outside of asking on wp- 
hackers, is there a document that will tell me? (so far, I don't know  
the answer after looking at some of the AJAX and admin plugins related  
Codex pages).
