Oh right, forgot about that.  Does this look okay?

address@hidden maximum-scroll-margin
   The variable @code{scroll-margin} restricts how close point can come
 to the top or bottom of a window (even if aggressive scrolling
 specifies a fraction @var{f} that is larger than the window portion
 between the top and the bottom margins).  Its value is a number of screen
 lines; if point comes within that many lines of the top or bottom of
 the window, Emacs performs automatic scrolling.  By default,
address@hidden is 0.
address@hidden is 0.  The effective margin size is limited to a
+quarter of the window height by default, but this limit can be
+increased up to half (or decreased down to zero) by customizing

address@hidden maximum-scroll-margin
+This variable limits the effective value of @code{scroll-margin} to a
+fraction of the current window line height.  For example, if the
+current window has 20 lines and @code{maximum-scroll-margin} is 0.1,
+then the scroll margins will never be larger than 2 lines, no matter
+how big @code{scroll-margin} is.

address@hidden itself has a maximum value of 0.5, which
+allows setting margins large to keep the cursor at the middle line of
+the window (or two middle lines if the window has an even number of
+lines).  If it's set to a larger value (or any value other than a
+float between 0.0 and 0.5) then the default value of 0.25 will be used
+instead.
