To be precise -- flood has no real docs. This is why few example configurations use real hosts.
You don't have real docs, but have a quick look at example config, and you know all about
flood (well... almost ;)

If majority of people think that such thing suck, then let it be. However let me finish real
(xml based that is) flood docs first. Then we can make a bunch of scripts of all kinds (php,
jsp, asp, whatever) that demonstrate all nifty flood features. Since we have baseurl support
in flood it would be trivial for people to prepare test enviroment for themselves. Does that
make sense?
