If you ask a question in user list, don't expect to get an answer on dev 
list ;)

This is a Mailing List, not a FAQ. I don't think that a newbie who post 
a question that have been answered 100 times in the ML is doing 
something bad :
- if the question has been asked 100 times, then that means the FAQ is 
not correct
- and in this case, either the doco or the example are not perfect :)

No problem... I tried to answer your question with my understanding, and 
I don't think we have had an argument so far ;)
