The internal documentation

The internals document does not have to describe every detail of the internal operation of the software---clearly, the source listing is the final authority.

However, the source listing should be considered only the base of a pyramid of documentation. The internals document describes the larger features of the product---the principle algorithms and data structures that one must understand in order to make any sense of the sources.
