Although the source code is not very much commented, it is carefully
structured, and a great care is taken in identifier naming. Once you get
used to the rules, the code is quite readable. (of course, as I have
written it).

Can you tell us a bit about your aims?

Questions are usually asked here, I also try to answer code related
questions, it all depends on the volume :) and my availability.
