applied, thanks!

I added a few sub-headings and references for the docs patch.
And we might need to do a bigger restructuring there, currently we describe
the options as encountered in the web UI's VM create wizard, which on it's
own is fine to do as a short overview, but we now have everything related to
every option there too. OTOH, a simple split might make some important things
harder to find, but having all cobbled together does too – as you see, no good
solution jumped into my face, so just mentioning it for the record, maybe some
body else got a better idea (or can spent more time on this), it's not a big
issue yet after all.
