Hi Doug and thanks for the reply.

I wish I could offer a better sentence but I'm always struggling with
explaining such things in our javadocs as well. All I can suggest is to
have the unbounded example before the bounded example so people really
needing bounded tips can continue reading while most people can stop at the
unbounded example.
