Someone besides me is *documenting*?  On their own?  Without me
pushing from behind?

...I'm not sure I can take the shock.


Seriously, it looks really good, Gary.  Thanks a lot.

A related task for the next development cycle: We now have two different 
calibration procedures in the Tine Service HOWTO. One was written by Gary
and is based on peerstats; the other by Sanjeev Gupta and is based on

Can these be merged? How do we know which is appropriate to use when?
What could we build in the way of tools and visualization aids to make
the calibration process less annoying?

(I've added this to TODO.)
