Did you read his post?  His main point about documentation is that people tend
to document functions but not data structures, which is something that I fully
agree with.

This problem derives from Erlang being unityped - In languages like Haskell or
SML with proper ADTs documenting them is a natural thing to do, and that's
usually the main part of the documentation in general.
