Hope you're right! I'll post a picture about these beers after a few weeks.

Way back before bottling buckets and carb tabs I remember using about 1 and 1/2 teaspoonfuls of sugar in each ONE QUART bottle.
Just to be sure put them in a bucket and cover with a blanket AND be careful handling them. A close friend lost part of his ear jostling a case of homebrew (quarts) on his shoulder because one decided to blow.

No overcarbonation whatsoever.

I have now opened several bottles. The glass bottles had 1.5 teaspoons per 0.5 litre bottle, and my 1.5 litre soda bottles had 4 teaspoons per bottle. None of the bottles I have opened so far came even near to overcarbonation. Here is one example of one of those bottles I opened today:

It seems that the sugar amounts were uneven (due to bottle-by-bottle priming), since the next beast turned out like this (but it clearly is not overcarbonated, but quite delicious!):
