BUG: Unclear explanantion in configuration file for stream_quality

Unclear explanantion in configuration file for 'stream_quality' in motion.conf. It currently states:

===== # Quality of the jpeg images produced (default: 50) stream_quality 50 =====

1) Is this in percentage or is it an absolute value?

2) What is the impact of the this parameter? Smaller pictures, why is that important (network traffic maybe)?

BTW: higher in the config file there is the parameter quality:

# The quality (in percent) to be used by the jpeg compression (default: 75) quality 75 =====

This is clearly described is being in percentages.

Environment

Motion version: 3.2.11.1
ffmpeg version:  
Shared libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: openSUSE-11.2

You are right is poorly described , it should clarify that is percentage like it's explained in the guide :
