Technical it is a little more complex, you can kill more
than X sheeps, but avoid to kill more than in X-1 Zones...

Because you had to keep at least one copy, it is X-1...

For a quick change, could you[1] please change the first
sentence to "Do never kill more than X-1 sheep daemons[...]"
I will have a look next week, if I could integrate the zones
concept in that part...

A Good Practice Guide with some examples for Cluster
Creation is a good idea, and some of the docs seems
to be a little outdated (snapshots for Example gives
an different output with 0.4).



[1] I have no github account right now, will create one next
week, with more time :-)
