First couple of thoughts:

1) Can we somehow remove or update the comments that were left by 
others? Some of the comments refer to outdate-ness that now has been 
fixed. Maybe ew can leave a "reply" on those comments?

2) Near the end there's an example on how to apply the rest skin in a 
traverse event subscriber. Useful! I would like to see a note though 
that having this traverse event subscriber in there will effectively 
bypass the "normal" view behaviour from that traverse step onwards.
