Absolutely. nothing wrong in instructions how to build and flash new calypso

they have. Placebo effect is all powerful. And more users flashing new firmware
and then looking for any improvements they might want to spot will result in
more such reports about "new firmware improves XYZ" which agian pulls in new
users tempted to try and believe.
By all means write instructions based on clear facts! We need those.
