That's a great objective, but clearly it will take time to get there, and 
even when we've achieved it I think it remains in the spirit of an Open 
Source Software project to keep as good a set of instructions as we can on 
the website for people to be able to Do It Themselves, either because they 
want to, or because they want to try it on some new piece of hardware and 
need all the help they can get understanding how it's supposed to work on 
something functional before embarking on something which they expect to 
presentthem with  challenges.

but at the end of the day the size of the crowd at your funeral
will be largely dictated by the weather.
