I find this example particularly interesting because
it's pretty much a word-for-word description of what
the sysadmin at the college where I teach is working on
right now.  Fine-tuning of various sorts might make
for a very useful category of howto docs.  So here's
a question:  what other specific types of howtos might
we include in such a category?
