I second this motion, but what can we do to help?

The introduction should VERY clearly explain, why, how, who is doing it.
Within this introduction or a stage two, the author should not assume an all 
knowing networking expert whose parents first words were tcp-ip commands.  
Things as basic as "who the hell are those peers", who are not?
