    There are many useful tools in the ArcPy library, particularly the Spatial Analyst tools, which could be deployed as Python Raster Functions for use in a mosaic or image function chain.  There is some documentation on GitHub on how to construct a Python Raster Function but there is nothing on how to integrate any of the arcpy.sa functionality into a new function.  Having this capability allows the user to create, for example, a mosaic of a terrain derivative based on a complex function using calls to the arcpy.sa libraries.  Having "cookbook" documentation explaining the steps would be very useful.
