It covers some never stuff, but yes, it is fairly similar. Personally, I
would like to ditch all the "how to move around" with keys stuff -- this
scares most people to hell, because they think that they need to learn
this to do something that they already know how to do these things.

In terms of advanced issues, my thought was to enable tutorial
extensions to go into ELPA and then have a navigational structure. The
current tutorial for the even trivial reason that it's flat.
