I really don't want to complicate the getting started guide with
instructions for compiling a subset of the libraries, and the
individual library documentation will in most cases not give those
instructions either.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity, or we will lose much of our

Hmm... we'll also lose our audience if they have to wait through a
