Reading the first chapter should be plenty to get you going. Use the
rest as a reference manual. That's what I did. I don't think the
organization of the manual has changed that much since then, although
it has grown.
I'm not sure about the answer to your other question. I'd have to
check to see whether what I have in mind would work.
