Seeing this thread has me thinking that my current team might really
like this for a quick way to document alpha/beta-stage features that we
know will ultimately quite different. The increasing frequency of
try-em-and-change-or-drop-em software work is causing a lack of docs
because nobody wants to take the time/effort for throw-away docs. So
maybe the fact that these walk throughs of course aren't practical to
maintain for many reasons -- in fact, all the issues with screenshots,
only vastly worse -- just doesn't matter if they're so easy to create.
Thanks for the discussion!
