Suggestion from @tucson :

I propose to update datatable-intro.pdf with a chapter [4. Join], and a Table of Content in the same doc. [4. Join] could explain that "data.table join is done as follows: [example]. DATA.TABLE JOIN IS A RIGHT OUTER JOIN BY DEFAULT. [4.1 Right outer join (default option)] [4.2 Left outer join] [4.3 Inner join] [4.4 Full outer join] Each paragraph giving a simple example.

Done in ?data.table. Will reflect in vignette after, as this'll change to inner join soon enough.
