Hi Laurent,

Looks v. good to me. My two pennies: one thing that may be worth adding is a short worked example of setting up/administering a small service set, as an extension of the 'Practical Usage' part (though including logging would probably be nice as well). May even be worth having on its own dedicated page, linked to from the overview. In my experience many folks, when new to a tech and/or concept, like to have concrete examples in addition to a high-level overview.
