Aaah! The offending chapter! ;-)

To tell the truth, this whole chapter is one mix of confusion. At no 
point it becomes clear if we are reading about method 3, method 1, or 
method 2, as the text jumps from one item to another and back (maybe I 
am exagerating, but hardly so, and for non-native speakers a total 

I would suggest to subdivide the chapter into clearly defined paragraphs 
with the following headers, /after the first 'note'/:

*- Method 3*
[following, a short exposition on how to use method 3 (default); the 
(exclusive) use of intervals 1 (default); the use of (single) samples, 
(default 10); etc]

*- Method 1*
[following, a short exposition of the legacy use of method 1]

*-Method 2*
[following, a short exposition of the legacy use of method 2]

That way, imho, new users and even experienced ones, will understand 
what it is all about. The recent discussion shows how confusing things 
sometimes appear to be...
