To be fair there is edocs for all the public functions but in those
days It was mostly just only name of function, one sentence for some
one and may be there was some one with more but I was not lucky enough
to find them. Even information that Req (parameter of almost each
function) is implemented in mochiweb_request module was not pointed
from most of documentation if ever. Jayson Vantuyl is pointing in
another mail that same polymorphism can be done without parametrized
module and all this is just bad experience with one application. Yes,
it seems true. Well, parametrized modules doesn't bring more issues
than present in rest of Erlang.
