I'm not sure if these should be the default recommendation, but it
certainly rates a mention as a useful alternative.

I did this a couple of weeks ago. At least, I added intro/background
material on all those things, though I didn't rewrite the
examples/tutorial part fo the chapter at all.

I'd like a postfix section/chapter for mail too; I might get around to
writing a basic one (it only needs to be *very short* :) with useful
references to wider postfix doco.

Other chapters I think we need, at some stage:

 - ipsec
 - systrace
 - style guide for writing guide chapters, embodying when and how to
   use certain markup elements, writing in the first/third person,
   using examples, etc.
