Docs and tuts please, or this madness continues essentially forever.

Yes, it would be nice to have it Just Work(TM), but until there is enough 
available info so we can sort this ourselves, how about a script that surveys

Leenart?  His having a good overview of our non-functioning systems would have 
to be a plus...
