Hmmm. If that is really the only use case then maybe that should just be
documented in the changelog and in comments in appropriate places.
If it is not actually useful for regular users, then it should of course
_not_ be documented in the installation guide.
I was missing that context. Thanks for adding that.
So I've dropped the documentation patch and committed the others, with a
few cosmetic changes.
