IMO you can have both. How much would it hurt if there was a bit more 
information? Or a link to a related topic (as someone else suggested before).

If I think about using a certain PHP function I might want to double check 
on the exact syntax or to look at the minimum version required. So I go to 
the PHP.net website and quickly look at it.. but a newcomer might spend 
quite some time on the same page..
The same could become true for the PostgreSQL docs I gues. Meaning I will 
read a bit longer on the same page then you. But only until I have 
assimilated the information..

All I would ask is a bit more information in the docs then found at 
present, add information where it currently stops without talking to much :-)

I'm quite sure there are enough knowledgeable persons around to fill in the 
gaps found at present. But perhaps the interactive version of the docs 
might serve a great perpose here.
