We had a discussion a little while back as to where the authoritative 
source is for the driver docs.  The reason I dont like using what we have 
in db right now is because it didnt all convert correctly.  Because I 
dont know what to treat as the source I havnt updated any of the docs 
since about patch 8.  What I think I'm going to do is take the stuff on 
the web, strip the HTML and just do my own formatting that a perl script 
can frob to HTML or CML.  comments/concerns?

I didnt like the idea of $tree's either, seemed redudnant.  They are nixed.

I thought somebody rewrote $scheduler already?  As for its future, we 
should just make a $scheduler native module.

No, I think it can be used on many connection types.. (ponder)

Other than that, I'm going to start @dump'ing some stuff for a contrib 
archive, It'll likely be non-functional but can be used for reference.
