Documenting it would mean semi-freezing the interface, and since the 
interface is just slush and has already changed (in quotient.formless 
and quotient.web.webform), I don't think it's a great idea. One thing 
people need to understand about woven is that it is still in heavy 
development -- although development has slowed lately because it has 
become stable enough to use, there are still large refactorings I plan 
on undertaking which will vastly simplify the way woven works. While I 
will attempt to preserve backwards compatibility because I have a large 
codebase that needs it, I reserve the right to change interfaces 
because they are completely broken -- I think it'll be better in the 
long run to have well-designed interfaces than to have backwards 
compatibility with broken ones.

The best way to learn about woven is to try to use it, and to ask 
questions on #twisted.
