It would be nice to have; you may want to wait until the documentation is
more "settled", probably after the 1.0 release.  If you'd like to write
original documentation, that would help too, and that can be done right

We could use an extended section on networking setup, and a section on
ports.  If you check out the cvs target 'doc', you can base it off the
files there.  Specifically, copy one of the chapter.sgml files in a
directory under /doc/en/books/userguide/ and start working.  If you are
unfamiliar with the markup, you can read up on it at
