For anyone with good knowledge of the language, code is self-documenting, but the document is wildly incomplete, entirely lacking an indexing system (apart from grep which is woefully inadequate), and spread across disparate files in a filing system that is likewise lacking indexing.

I know that part of the appeal of frameworks is to provide some kind of indexing for finding what you need to work on, but frameworks also come with both bloat and inescapable opinions about structure, and not all projects you will come to will be built on one (the one I work on is not, for which I am grateful).
