The common sense to apply is that if the source code says one thing
and the documentation says another, then one of them is wrong and
should be updated.  Usually it's the source code that's wrong, but in
either case, saying to ignore the documentation and follow the code,
rather than repairing the discrepancy somehow, is poor advice.
