          This patch updates the guide a bit. It could still be improved, but now it's at least mostly truthful! One note is that we still talk about dfs.web.ugi which is no longer respected. I will open another JIRA to deal with that.

          Can anyone review this? This should definitely go in for 0.22 as the docs are incorrect without this patch.
