What Robert said is good - whatever's needed to enable DragonFly-specific
features.  Along with that would be some sort of documentation (a README? 
A HTML file on whatever desktop we provide) that points people at the
different DragonFly tools, so they know what to try and how to try it.

There's going to be some percentage of people who try DragonFly who don't
know about vkernels, for instance, but there's our chance to educate them.
 I'm probably volunteering myself, aren't I?
