That's C.O.D. (Cash On Delivery)

I see two possible solutions for the documentation problem:
1) document the implementation
2) implement what's documented

For non-toy use I'd prefer the second alternative, because
- it's easier to make something work as it should,
- the topics deserve no updates but an "implemented" note
- availability on platforms also only deserves a note
- new revisions deserve no rescan nor big updates
- the documentation can never be seriously outdated
