Thanks for pointing at this. :)
Indeed, it looks at me that one of most exciting and challenging goals would
be to outline (and hence describe in a detailed manner) all of the different
existing styles and compare them after several points of view, so that one
can choose her/his preferred style based upon which she/he believe to better
fit to her/his needs, rather than just the first they suggested her/him or
that with the best documentation available or something alike. I think this
would be also useful for mentoring.
