Hey! I'm currently documenting!

And then I write a @defproc section and realize, "Hey, I have no idea 
what the error is on this function!" So I write a bigfloat 
implementation, run more tests, make another approximation, tweak, 
fiddle, and curse a lot. Then I can write, "Yup, 4 ulps" in the docs.

Long story short: be grateful, you big snot.

Uh, that came out all wrong. It was supposed to be kinda 
tongue-in-cheek, but I think I chewed the slug a bit.

Oh, BTW, Vincent recently made changes that should make the types on 
plot's exported functions a lot nicer. Specifically, keywords now play 
more nicely with optional arguments. Also, making plot's API more 
TR-friendly is definitely on my to-do list, mostly because I'm tired of 
not being able to plot in the same file I'm defining functions.
