Agreed.  This is one of the motivators for the code evolution
projects.  New developers need to find a codebase that is easier to
hack than the one we found
(http://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/ImprovementProjects).  Documentation is a big
part of that.

As it was argued earlier, finding such volunteers is very hard.  The
job is not easy and it is generally thankless.
