Another of my concerns is empty nodes.  If we start from a high level
Store vs Serve overview with contributed recipes, configs and howtos
then the content is there.  It's a done deal.

If we start with a monster TOC (which could be added later) then it
will either need to be a manual, and all the yak shaving that goes
into making one, or it will be a bunch of empty links that aren't
useful to anybody either.

Having said that, I think there's a bit of a compromise:

Table of Contents
 1. Introduction
     1. Components of MogileFS
     2. Storage Overview
     3. Serving Overview
 2. Storage Information
 3. Serving Overview

Then it can expand as we have nodes, there isn't a lot of organization
put into it, and we won't have stale nodes nor a confusion as to where
to look (the manual or the wiki)
