Hi Anastasia,

Thanks so much for your help on the text.

Regarding your second point, you are correct that we want to provide the 
ability to have "exclusions" as are allowed with the command line 
Builder (http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Custom+Build). 
However, this requires some significant designer cycles as the interface 
for this is not intuitive. The Infusion Builder as it stands now, 
provides basic functionality and is a great first step in that 
direction. People who need the extra functionality of exclusions will 
still need to use the command line tool (this may be something to add to 
the explanation on the website).
