Hi. Michael,

You are right that this facility is not really documented. Sorry about that.

At this stage, to create that documentation, I'd have to do the same
as you: read the source, figure out what is going on, and write it up.
I'd be happy to do that, but since it's a non-trivial amount of work,
we'd need you to have a YAZ support contract to cover our costs.
Alternatively, if you figure it out yourself and add the relevant
documentation, please send us a pull request, and we can bring it into
the core code.
