Yup, so the walk-through should just explain the easiest approach,
and link to the more detailed background material for the rest.
E.g., the QEMU part doesn't need all the background information
from the QEMU page. Trimming the MokoMakeFile information may be a
bit harder.

possible answers. The "getting started guide" should give one
that's reasonably efficient and reasonably fool-proof.

Yeah, but this should be really easy. Most beginners won't care
to understand all the fine points of our build process, at least
not initially.

Perhaps this makes that one more item for the "contributions we'd
appreciate" list. People who have gone through a certain learning
experience recently are usually in the best position to describe
it. Any bugs/inefficiencies can be filtered out through peer
