     * ``user`` -- An ``auth.User`` instance representing the currently
       logged-in user (or an ``AnonymousUser`` instance, if the client isn't
       logged in). See the `user authentication docs`.
-    * ``messages`` -- A list of ``auth.Message`` objects for the currently
-      logged-in user.
-    * ``perms`` -- An instance of ``django.core.context_processors.PermWrapper``,
-      representing the permissions that the currently logged-in user has. See
-      the `permissions docs`_.
+      
+    * ``messages`` -- Returns a list of messages for the currently logged-in
+      user (set with ``user.add_message()``). Behind the scenes, this calls
+      ``request.user.get_and_delete_messages()``, which iterates over user's
+      messages and returns the actual message before deleting the ``Message``
+      object.
+      
+    * ``perms`` -- An instance of
+      ``django.core.context_processors.PermWrapper``, representing the
+      permissions that the currently logged-in user has. See the `permissions
+      docs`_.
