XSLT would help us over come this, so we authors could write the
documents as a unified whole, right?  The first chapter could include a
"How to identify your desktop" bit.  Each task could have a mini-ToC
pointing to the each of the 2+ sets of instructions.  Mind you, I don't
quite know how to accomplish this, but I'm confident it's possible.
