== Reorganize the handbook espc. related to AppCafe{{r}} ==

This control panel chapter should include an AppCafe{{r}} section. The Series chapter that ''Using AppCafe{{r}}'' is part of, should be distributed into other areas of the handbook. A new series chapter, ''The Commandline Method'' to be placed nearer the back of the handbook, containing another hierarchy of all areas previously described with the cli commands and how-tos.  Each location in the earlier chapters where those sections/chapters had been, will have a link pointing to the location in the new series chapter. (''I would say page if every title in the table of contents resulted in exactly one 8.5x11" page, and so I created a new name to describe it'' :) Another new series chapter, ''Troubleshooting'' which is another hierarchy to draw all other places that have troubleshooting instruction. A start to identifying these is the troubleshooting category, which is simply the category marker where the word is used.

Part of the trouble with all of the above, is the size and proximity to release. Can it all be accomplished before then?
