I was talking about the official server guide here: which I didn't
think just anyone can edit.  And even if I could edit it, well, I'm
not the best at making words good.

There is still a bit of a problem, too.  The documentation doesn't
tell you to install libvirt-bin until AFTER it tells you to make the
bridge settings.
