I agree for the most part - it just seems by the example, that you need mount 
tags to attach a stream at all.  Obviously in practice this is not the case, 
the entire block is optional.  This would be a good thing to point out.

I should also point out that I'm not personally having any trouble with this, 
I'm just trying to make life easier for Debian users who might install my 
packages, and others who might be confused.
