"Feature Wishlist" is not "How to install" or a "Bug".  And do you 
really think anyone is going to read every page on the site before 
diving right in?  Even for the total newbies, we're still all geeks to 
some degree or another, and everyone knows that geeks don't read any 
more of the documentation than they have to, which is "How do I install" 
to begin with and "Bugs" when something goes wrong.  "Feature Wishlist" 
isn't something to read before starting, and doesn't even enter into the 
equation when someone runs into this issue.


I haven't smoked for 3 months, 2 weeks and 3 days,
saving $492.74 and not smoking 3,284.93 cigarettes.
