           Summary: The "Memory Management" documentation incorrectly
                    claims arrays are passed by reference.

The semantics of using an array passed to a function may be reference like, but
the array is most certainly not 'passed by reference'. Glossing this over will
lead to confusion for people later on when they resize an array passed to a
function and wonder why the changes haven't been reflected at the call site.
