Well, customizing variables belongs to the emacs realm; given that, the
documentation is pretty good. One way to improve it could be something
like "You have enabled the habits module by "`M-x customize-variable'
org-modules". The customize buffer is fairly self-explanatory then I
guess. However, while this would make the manual more newcomer friendly,
it would also be less pleasant to read imho. ...

Tracking TODO state changes is in 5.3.2, i.e. just one "[" keypress
away, if you read the emacs info pages?! But a link rarely hurts, I
guess :).

Thanks for your suggestions!
