Why do the install docs use Apache Alias w/ trailing slash?


This reference seems to make a solid argument for not using trailing slashes:


The 'ScriptAlias' trailing slash may not hurt much of anything (although I 
plan on being consistent and tell my Apache admins to always eliminate 
trailing ScriptAlias and Alias slashes as a general rule...for 
consistency's sake--any problems with this?), but the Alias trailing slash 
can cause problems as per above...I think.

Am I overlooking something?  If so, I'd like to get to the bottom of it so 
I get my Mailman server working correctly for all user scenarios.
