Good. Will let you know when it is there.

Agreed. There is a lot of stuff, and it will take a while to get used to some 
of it.

I think I will move the docs to the wiki and then just have a single document 
widget that links to it. The markdown and layout of the docs is just not really 
suitable to use the built-in documentation. Also there is no TOC, etc.

But before I do this, I will give a couple of demos at the Hackathon and see 
which areas of the UI and tool need more descriptions than others.
