I do not agree that that manpage is sufficient. It describes a lot, and
does that well,
but it describes only the various keywords, but I still need to have an
overview, with examples.
It's hard for me to understand such an important process as starting the
machine without examples.
For example the samba documentation is not only the manpage of smb.conf,
but consists also of example setups (on the website).
