Boy, if there was ever an argument for screenplay(cuz it's not video, and
it's not text) tutorials!  It's MUCH easier to write a screenplay tutorial
than to write documentation, and it's more effective too.  "OK, lets go item
by item and write down or say what it does."

Hurm, the more I talk about speech, the more I worry about having to listen
to some schmuck with a thick accent "document" something without
enunciating.  The GNOME style standard, if it accepts screenplay standards
as a recommended help aid, should clearly state that all documentation
should include text description of what's being said.  Besides, it's better
for my two deaf friends.  :-)  Not everyone can hear.

(OK, not everyone can see, but it's kinda hard to use GNOME while being
blind.  tcsh is a bit better here :-)
