Surely not (I'm new on the Incubator list ;-). I mean the page is 
generated when they view it locally, it is uploaded to the server when 
they do "svn ci", but it can't be linked to, do they really expect 
Forrest to write their docs for them?

Or are you saying they will want to see it automatically appear i the 
site navigation? If so then it is a FAQ with an example of how we do 
that in the Resume plugin.
