The method "FileDocumentManager.addFileDocumentManagerListener" in sdk docs seems doesn't exist

Hello! masters!

I am working on  translating a DSL to JAVA.   

In the IDEA SDK docs  link  "http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/basics/architectural_overview/documents.html",  "FileDocumentManager.addFileDocumentManagerListener" is suggested to access saved documents. But I have not found the method addFileDocumentManagerListener in the class FileDocumentManager,  what's the problems?

All  methods of FileDocumentManager listed in the source code is :

getInstance
getDocument
getCachedDocument
getFile
saveAllDocuments
saveDocument
saveDocumentAsIs
getUnsavedDocuments
isDocumentUnsaved
isFileModified
reloadFromDisk
getLineSeparator
requestWriting
fileForDocumentCheckedOutSuccessfully
reloadFiles

And the source code is:

Additional remark:

The interface 

SavingRequestor 

that  

FileDocumentManager 

inherit is an empty interface without any method.

(see http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/reference_guide/messaging_infrastructure.html for general information about messaging infrastructure)

The documentation referencing already not-existing method addFileDocumentManagerListener will be fixed.
