Indeed. Read it. It may look like a joke, but it ain't one.

NO!!!! Create your own board directory, and your own config file. Add
only the stuff you really understand. Read the documentation and  the
code where necessary.

The connection between the language in which we think/program and the
problems and solutions we can imagine is very close. For this  reason
restricting  language  features  with  the intent of eliminating pro-
grammer errors is at best dangerous.
