Yes, indeed the information is there.  What makes the wiki sometime impenetrable 
is that doing a search, even a Google search, with keyword based or topic based 
queries rather than command based queries leads to varying results.  You know 
what you want to do; you just don't know which commands will lead you to the result.

Also just to clarify, as is my habit, I did search the wiki, and in this case I 
had even looked repeatedly at the hints.  I just didn't catch the distinction in 
my own coding.

I guess the trick is to know what commands one should hone in on ;).
