That is true. Fact is, i suck at writing documentation, especially
when i start waving my hands while talking to my computer screen to
explain what i am trying to tell php people on the internet. I would
be happy if you could guide me how to speak English to php people or
even mod_python people.

So i guess my first thing would be explaining dfo is nothing else then
a bunch of  handlers and some static xhtml javascript pages that post
xml data to communicate with the server using xmlhttprequest.

O man i think i am going to cry lol
