I disagree. It's not the friction that vital to keep the crank in
place, it's the matching shape of the square taper and the square
hole. Therefore, having the crank very tight on the taper is the main
thing, and grease helps to achieve that. Also put grease on the thread
where the nut will go on.

There is a nice crank installation manual by John Childs, hidden
somewhere behind the search button. I couldn't find it in the time I
alotted myself. And I didn't spot a link on his megalist either.
