I did the initial update just to figure out how the schema stuff works
and at that point I don't think drupal_write_record() had been
committed. Help with the documentation is always welcome so feel free
to dig in.

The documentation is stored in the contrib CVS repository. You can
browse it via the web here:
To check it out code you can follow the directions here:
If you've got a Drupal CVS account you can make any changes you'd
like... but the preferred workflow (that I'm totally guilty of not
following) is to create an issue discussing the changes you like to
make in the documentation issue queue:
Post a patch of your changes so any interested parties can review
it... give it a day or two and if there's no response and you're
confident in your changes you can go ahead and commit them. Make note
of the issue number in your commit message so that if a few months
down the line someone's trying to figure out what your were thinking
with your changes they've got a place to go read more and leave

Now if only I could figure out where to stick this write in the
drupal.org handbooks....
