What would hotdraw confuse people, and hd wouldn't? I don't get it. I
see a hd directory, I wonder what it is (high definition would be my
first guess honestly).

While we are renaming it, we should move it to the root directory.
AFAICT, it could be used for the GQB.

Well, you already know what I think of our current documentation. It
won't be difficult to have the same kind of documentation for the DD
once the GSoC is done. We'll still have 10 months to write it. I know it
would be better to add it when we add the feature (to get a complete
commit), but with our current documentation, that doesn't seem a big
deal to me.

If you really want it now, I can write something this week-end.

I agree on this.
