I was mainly referring to reported user experience in :
Message-ID: <4A0E795A.5050203 at>, which started this discussion.

Thanks for your efforts, but my understanding of a user-friendly
procedure would be a max. 7 steps with 50 lines long description or
something like that, which could be understood (at least to grasp if
it's needed and the general idea of the required technical level needed)
in 2 minutes reading time... 
and currently, the instructions fail to comply with such standards :(
Understanding the Introduction itself takes at least more than 5 minutes
to really figure out what/when/why... IMHO.

Of course your mileage may vary, and the proportion of hackers here is
probably above average ;-)
