better documentation for vulcand

The banner on the Vulcand documentation reads:
Warning Status: Under active development. Used at Mailgun on moderate workloads.
I've read through parts of the docs several times and I'm basically disappointed. I've finally come to the realization that Vulcand is meant to be run inside a proper firewall so that means don't try to use it at digital ocean as they do not provide a proper firewall. And remember to add the necessary ports when forwarding 443 and 80 etc.

My concern is that ports 8181 and 8182 in the examples:
docker run -p 8182:8182 -p 8181:8181 mailgun/vulcand:v0.8.0-beta.2 /go/bin/vulcand -apiInterface=0.0.0.0 --etcd=http://172.17.42.1:4001
will be exposed to the public and private network. This is not the sort of thing that one guesses at. I would hope that they would be more clear.  The API interface is also bothersome.
