Make it explicit.  "Therefore s/s/d can actually be used anywhere that
s/s is used by using the identity function as the handler:

I lot of the documentation (the web server is generally better in this

tell you the implications or why you should care.  I know this is
intentional in the reference, and is being addressed in the guides.
