Hi Jason

Even I Don't Know where is The Perfect Documentation, but eventually you 
can start with decoding_encoding.c example.
There is also an good Tutorial by Dranger 
For Doxygen doc I would say Why dont You Write good comments on each API 
after doing above 2 exersize.
Or much easier way report bug about each api you don't get...
