I put some two very technical, not too subjective design
patterns in

I have found myself on the verge of sending a patch adding
Rusty Russell's API design manifesto somewhere there

The problem is mostly that I don't always feel what the
consensus is. With some subsystem maintainers happily
agree to disagree on so many things like inverse-christmas
tree includes or u_int8_t vs u8 it's easy to be discouraged.

I guess we should just be more bold? Who knows, maybe
noone even gets upset.

Apart from that I guess Documentation/process/* need to
be updated with best practices? Maybe that was the actual
initial question. I especially like management-style.rst,
that doc kicks ass.
