Yeah, this is important. I added to the TODO, patches would be welcome.

Ups, yeah, killed!

Yeah I think we need a wiki page, though I would like to keep it in
sync with the README somehow. I'm adding stuff there as I change the
code, so it's supposed to be always up to date. I can see a few

* Have the wiki as official documentation and just link from the README.
* Have the README as official documentation and just link from the
wiki (the details about git cloning the repo would have to still be on
the wiki of course)
* Write the README in wiki format and copy it on the wiki page,
keeping it in sync. (same story about git cloning)

I sort of like to keep the documentation with the code, but I don't
have a super strong feeling. What do you think of these possibilities?
Other ideas?
