Yay!! Thanks!

Cool, that looks pretty good already! One thing I'm missing in the 
tutorial though are the sidebars. CSS issue?

I think we should iterate towards a doc/current version before the 0.14 
release, so we can start linking to the new docs from grok.zope.org 
without having to wait for 0.14. Since there haven't been big changes on 
0.14 yet, we can keep that 0.13-but-not-really documentation in the 
trunk for a while.

Once that becomes impossible due to larger changes in 0.14, we'll do a 
re-think. :)

Sure. We could also consider moving this kind of documentation into the 
official documentation eventually.
