Hi Ben and list,
Thanks for pointing out missing bits of documentation. You're right 
about waiting for code to write itself. Please feel free to contribute a 
few pages to the manual.

Meanwhile, I'll look into building the manuals. (By the way, preliminary 
manual development was done under Ubuntu 10.04.)
