Good questions. I don't know that people will find the Builder  
component especially useful except as a feature on our Website for  
generating custom Infusion packages. It's been built to high standard  
of quality, and uses a lot of the features of the Infusion framework,  
but it's probably only useful for this particular purpose. While we  
will likely move the Builder out of the incubator when it's released  
and fully production-ready, I don't imagine that it will ever ship as  
a part of Infusion.

As a result, I think the documentation required will mostly be inward- 
facing, developer-oriented documentation along with any end-user  
documentation if necessary.

I'm always willing to consider otherwise, but for now I'm assuming  
it's probably just for use on our website.
