Hi Björn,
make sens, but in such case a "trouble-shooting" / "common caveat" / 
"performance issue" link in 'fun' paragraph to Myths paragraph should be 
done for people wanted to go further.
I know it is another thing to maintain, but as far documentation is 
bigger and bigger, links are really usefull.
I sometime remember having readen something interresting in 
documentation and do not remember where, and find it again weeks later 
fortuitously, while do not need it anymore.
but I suppose it is a general problem in all big documentation.
