There should be primary reference documentation, of every syntax,
public interface, and feature, in-tree.  This should be in plain text
files or perhaps manpages or something equally easy to edit and view.

That way we can require people who add new features to update the
documentation, and users will have the documentation which corresponds
to the code that they have.

That would be a good start.  NB that there's also the xm-config.5
manpage.  All of this needs to be unified.
