close: "baz +=> bar;" is the same as "bar + baz => bar".

Not really.  (Uh, what's documentation again?)  There are some test
cases - mostly for unit testing that doesn't do much else.  "cvs update 
should get the "v2/test" and the 100+ test code segments.  Phil (mostly)
and I made these to "rigorously" test the language.  However, since unit
generators are still being re-imported, no sound can be synthesized yet

Also, not all the grammar is finalized yet in these files, and we as a
group/community will continue to evolve the language.

Documentation - the good news is that Adam Tindale and others has
been working hard to put together bona-fide docs for ChucK.  The bad
news, well there is no bad news really, for once.

C/C++ to ChucK.  classes written in ChucK can instantiate imported 
and even extend them.

Um, it might have been more helpful if we actually documented this
somewhere other than the makefile itself...  we are at fault.

Good questions and of course no bother at all.  This is chuck-dev, 
after all!
