Yes but sometimes the documentation text (qqq) isn't helpful. For 
instance with StatusNet: It isn't helpful to specify the path to the 
corresponding line within the source code. In the source code isn't a 
documentation text, either. That doesn't help.

It's difficult for the TWN team to document **all** messages. It's an 
ideal that will never be.
