    @manishamde The current explanation is correct for the original Gradient Boosting algorithm,
which uses weak hypothesis weights and is oblivious to the weak learner being used.  Your
suggested explanation is really for TreeBoost, Friedman's improvement to the original algorithm
which is specialized for trees (which we should add at some point but isn't what we're claiming
to have now, I'd say).
