I do believe doc's are good: some (small) percentage of people read docs
by their own initiative, and some others read docs after being reminded
they exist. And tipically they read a bit more docs than they need to
solve their innmediate problem, so they may become "teachers" for other
It is an slow, but positive and accumulative effect.

And if docs exists, a flame plus an URL to the docs gives more benefits
than just a flame.
