Ok, here's a straw-man starting point for text to appear at the top of  
the Custom Build page. Everyone, feel free to comment!

This page allows you to select which modules of the Fluid Infusion  
software you would like to download. The modules you select will be  
packaged into a custom download for use with your application. There  
are some important things to note about this process:

1) Some of the Infusion modules require other modules to function.  
When you select a module, any other dependent modules will also be  
automatically selected.

2) Currently, the download package will automatically include all  
required dependencies, even if you have unchecked them. (This will  
change in future versions of this interface. If you require  
exclusions, a command-line version of the custom build process is  

2) The 'Download' button will become enabled as soon as at least one  
module is selected.

3) Clicking the 'Reset' button automatically unselects all modules.


Editor's comments:
For brevity, I left out mention of unselecting modules automatically  
unselecting dependencies. I suspect that this will be easily  
discovered by the user, but feel free to disagree with me.
