Hmm, maybe I should phrase my question differently...  I meant to ask is if
there is some way that we could

1) better discourage the use of these methods
2) improve the error messages of failed installation attempts to help users
(maybe have a particular webpage available with FAQ regarding installation
issues and have that URL printed in the case of an installation failure)?

The idea being that we might be able to better head-off these questions to
the mailing list by providing a better resource for dealing with
installation issues, and to have this resource available at the user's
