New fun game: What is the most underdocumented API in the
vast array of linux devel packages?

Having spent some time trying to write some code to
use the libgphoto2 library, I vote for it :-).

I'm currently installing debuginfo for libgphoto2 so
I can see if I can trace through the operation of
the gphoto2 program to observe which library calls
are used to perform which operations.

(Of course, this is today, if I get through this,
I'm going to want to figure out the video for linux
API, so it could have competition soon :-).

Keep notes, write the missing docs. It's the open-source way! :D
