Well I would disagree and say that the bare minimum is here. This is why 
I stopped contributing to the wiki: I had nothing else interesting to 
add. So now I ask: what exactly is missing from this bare minimum? In my 
opinion, questions such as "can I use the flag function inside the rule 
function" are definitely not part of the bare minimum.

(btw, the answer is: the use of the flag function inside the rule 
function is not specified, thus not documented)
