This was my idea. There is nothing wrong with talking about keyboard
controlled motion, but there is too much of it, and it should not be at
the start.

I think more "where to go from here" stuff would be an important
addition. Actually, I was thinking of writing it using org, then
exporting to text (minus markup).

> If it could be visually more appealing, it would be a plus.

Again, I agree, while noting that "visually appealing" is not one of my
big skills in life.

I'll have a think about it, and post here when I have more news. I'll
probably set up a repo somewhere to get going. Anyone got any options
about which VCS I should use?
