I thought one of the more subtle points (but very relevant) was that
Paul's father cared more about the men inside the harvester rather
than the harvester or the spice they had collected.  In the end of
the book (right after the big battle) Paul asks about how much
destruction to the house there was, and somebody (Gurney, i think)
remarks that his father would have cared more about the men lost.
This would seem to be a big lead on into the Jihad that follows and
to the billions killed by it, in _Dune Messiah_.
