Documentation is always welcome.  The wiki needs a lot of work, and
both Poul-Henning and I have far too much to do (both with Varnish and
other projects) to be able to spend much time on it.

BTW, could I suggest that you subscribe to varnish-misc or varnish-dev
(or both) so I don't have to manually approve everything you send to
the list?
