Lack of documentation for code under django.utils

As a user of Django, I have no idea whether or not I should use the tools found under django.utils in my code. Some note, somewhere, regarding this would be useful. Maybe I just happened to miss it?

Additionally, finding things under django.utils is difficult unless you search through the code. Just today I was searching for a way to extract just the text from some HTML (certainly a simple task, but not one I want to write my own code for). It took me some time to find django.utils.html.strip_tags. Searching Google for "django strip tags" returns some related code snippets and stuff, but no mention of that function. The same goes for the custom Google search in the Django Documentation website. A reference of some sort (auto-generated?) would be helpful just to have something to search through (and for Google to munch). It would also be helpful to know the state of different utilities, e.g. "deprecated", "stable and well-tested", "likely to change".
