This is absolutely correct. So this would be a good place to put some 
resources. I've tried to do a better job of in-code documentation in 
Views 2, but the one thing that's lacking is an overall architecture 
doc, and I haven't quite figured out the best way to put this together. 
I have an offer of help there, but that offer is contingent this person 
having mythical time.
