Yes, but it is an excessive information. The trigger to return number
of all elements is 'ids == NULL'. Here we are talking about
'xstats_names' parameter. If the parameter is NULL, but ids is not
null, it does not trigger number of all elements return. It is an
invalid input parameters. That's what a new description says.

I'm not sure that it is a right direction. The support allows
application to use less number of functions and depend on less
number of function prototypes.

I agree. I'll fix in v2.

OK

I think it is excessibe. It is sufficient to say so for ids==NULL which
is a trigger to get all elements.
