That little annoyance of star-merge is a bug -- though kind of a minor
one since it only bites you until your revlib is primed.

Aside from the "much" of "much more" I basically agree with that.
And beyond howtos, just some boilerplate tools that capture common
configuration cases will be a nice addition.  [insert ubarch,
overarch, itla thread here.]

My "defense" for leaving this particular junction box exposed and hot
is basically that when users run into it, they quickly learn a lot
about how arch works -- it's better than any tutorial could hope to do
