Nah, we already mention all sorts of other design flaws -- such as  
the lack of merge tracking (and workarounds).  My fear is really  
about overwhelming the reader with the sheer verbosity of that one  
scenario.  :-)

I think the best way to proceed is to whittle the warning down into  
*two* paragraphs, and then either put those into a FAQ or a book  
<warning>.  Eric Hanchrow:  care to try condensing?
