    We should try to make the RPython documentation better. Here's a list of some things that Laurie had a hard time figuring out:

    - "The difference / relation between the various typing systems (rffi.INT, r_int etc.) are a mystery to me."

    - exact semantics of lists, e.g. when things are resizable and how make_sure_not_resized is used, what about the negative indexes

    - how does specialization work, and what can it be used for?

    - what are the exact GC semantics?
