Dunno yet. I have a policy of trying to travel with the whole family,
which means I'll have to decide whether I'm willing to put that much money
into it, or whether some poor unsuspecting company can help sponsor me ;)
We'll see.

Yeah. We do not have a nice paper explaining the concepts and usage. The 
tutorial isn't really in-depth enough (it doesn't even mention a lot of 
the helper scripts or even some of the core stuff). The old README started 
out explaining some of the concepts, but it's _way_ of out date in all 
usage respects.

Pasky has the Overview thing, which gets pointed to by kernel.org, and 
which could be expanded upon a lot. 

I'll happily help anybody who wants to try to write some nice
documentation (answer questions etc), but I'm just not very good at doing
it myself.
