I more or less agree with what has been said in this thread; thchnical documentation is definitely important (and I'd use POD, so you get nicely formatted document in no time).
What usually lacks in other peopole docs is the "why": you find a lot of information on all possible API calls but very few on why the module was developed and on the general problem space it was trying to solve.
Simple quick-and-dirty usage examples also help get started. (For a good exaple of documentation, see the LWP cookbook - firts you get started, then you read the docs when you try to do fancier things).
Simple things should be easy, and documentation should help.
