I think the answer that is being looked for here is to the question:
do you always break it in the same way though ?

To put that another way, should one trust the commands, or the text,
where the differ, when playing with a given unstable version ?

I would guess the commands but it would be just a guess.

Presumably, as with much of software development, you type some
commands and, if they are found to work, you add those to the unstable
book and you "document" later, no ? 

all the best,
