For what it's worth, I've never thought that CHIRP nor its documentation
should be geared at someone who has no idea what they're doing.

Again, it's generated from the code automatically. It's meant for
developers and interested people that know what they're looking at.

Agreed, which is why I said in my previous mail that it's likely to be
used by documentation-writers, in addition to the folks it was intended
for (developers). I think you said you're looking to help out by
creating (or starting the effort to generate) the user-level
documentation. I feel that the table is likely to be helpful for you
(well, tomorrow's table with Tom's update), but it's not necessarily
what should be presented to the end-user.
