Do you typically include screen shots of installer panels in documentation
aimed at a technical audience?

We market software products that are used by other software developers, a
tech-savvy audience. The installer walks the user through a series of a
dozen or so uncomplicated, self-explanatory panels. I see no reason to put
screen captures of all these panels in the doc, but I'm getting flak about
that decision from somebody who is sometimes (but not always) right.

Please copy me directly on responses as I'm on digest. Thanks.
