 From node/12347

last line:
..."this way nid can be replaced with DISTINCT(nid) should there be a 
need for it."

maybe should read:

this way the node_rewrite_sql() function can rewrite the query to use 
DISTINCT(nid) should there be a need for it.

This adds clarity to those that aren't familiar with the recent changes.
I would edit the handbook myself - but edit option is gone from handbook
