We've been talking about this as a topic for the hackathon for the last
couple of years. I seem to recall that one of the things that keep us
from doing this (other than being insanely busy preparing for a all the
presentations) is that we never found a good way to structure the
rewrite docs/guide.

Agreed. I think it might be the best idea to split the doc into a short
"getting started" tutorial and a howto document (possibly a simple and
an advanced howto doc).

+1 - I have a few cycles to spend on this in the next couple of months
and I have some potentially useful content from my apachecon talks.
