Perhaps not for all pages - for example, the "Tear" page doesn't appear
to menace any data or ask you to do anything risky, nor does
"Customizing Maemo" for the most part, but there's definitely a need to
warn people sometimes.

I extracted the header of the "Free up rootfs space" page (which could
do with a name-change, perhaps?) and put it in "Template:Danger" - to be
included in all pages that ask the user to do anything which, if they
don't do it right, could endanger the correct functioning or personal
data of the user's device.
