Let's not put tutorial features in the primary interface.

Make it a separate script `arch-newbie', where the newbie can read it
(maybe even have an `arch-newbie introspect' command that pipes itself
to less), not part of tla.  And add an option for it to be a mirror of
address@hidden (alternatively, address@hidden).

So install a decent shell and use one of the fancy completion
interfaces.  No?
