I strongly feel that this section...
... should have a note or something like the following.
Note that the delete() method for an object is not necessarily called when deleting a queryset containing that object as explained in http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/queries/#deleting-objects.
To ensure a customized delete method gets called have a look at http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/signals/#topics-signals
Also note that when deleting an object from the built in admin interface related objects may be deleted in this way and may not call the overridden delete() method.
