NSRulerView custom hash-marks through delegation documentation is wrong

The header for NSRulerView states the following:

- (void)drawHashMarksAndLabelsInRect:(NSRect)rect;
    // You should never need to call this, but you might want to override it.  This method is called by -drawRect: to draw the actual hash-marks and labels on the ruler.  If you want to do custom hash-marks and labels you should first look at doing it with a delegate.  You can do whatever kind of custom hash-marks you want through delegation as long as the hash-marks and labels are evenly spaced.  But if you need to do hash-marks or labels that are not evenly spaced you will need to override this.

I'll point out specifically the mention of "You can do whatever kind of custom hash-marks you want through delegation…" — there are no delegate methods that I can see on NSRulerView that would let you do anything of the sort. 

I'd love to be proven wrong, but I assume this is a mistake.
