Hi Igor,

thanks for asking. :-)

All of them. :-P (No, seriously, all of them.)
Please forgive I'm not directly answering the FAQ question. Only time
will show which questions arise frequently.

Still, if I may ask for some things ...

User documentation:
* quick intro "howto" style tutorial
* complete and consistent API documentation
* also: what needs to be taken care of wrt. Smalltalk side ./. native
side (read: how to deal with low-level internals)
* perhaps 1-2 bigger-scale tutorials

Developer documentation:
* how does it work?
-> shape of the interface one uses
-> how is native code actually invoked
-> what is the extension to the VM (places, purposes)
-> what do I need to know / where would I have to look if I wanted to
extend this

I recall you wrote some things on this project earlier, and I read
them with great interest. Please, if you assemble documentation,
include those texts in the docs, instead of pointing to mailing list
archives. :-)
