(Deliberately ignoring the "guy instructions" issue)

This is COOL! Really terse, complete, to the point
instructions are a very good thing, IMHO,
especially when they complement a more complete
set. What I find interesting--and useful--is that
they hit the bits that are likely to be the real
issues for people who just assemble first and ask
questions later.
