I'm not saying that that's a good thing. But I think that it's a better
state than not having the feature at all. I've seen stuff without docs
and written docs for it where I wouldn't have done anything at all if
the feature hadn't existed.

Basically, refusing code due to lack of user documentation is saying
having half a loaf is worse than having none. I'm not sure if that's
what you were aiming at or not, but it felt a little like it might be.
