HttpRequest.path_info is documented nowhere.

I think documentation with note that user code in most cases must use request.path_info and not request.path (for portability) is important.

Also all SCRIPT_NAME/PATH_INFO thing needs more space in documentation, not only small section in deployment.

Note that most user code should *not* use request.path_info. The only case when it should be used is if the code deals directly with url resolving.
