For what it's worth, I did first-tier for about 4 years, and yes, I had
to walk some people through that... and as long as they weren't the
type to *get frustrated* whild doing things they didn't understand, it
generally went swimmingly.

While I was driving down the interstate.  

In my 21 year old *stickshift* BMW.

With a Big Mac in the other hand.  ;-)

So as long as *you* know how to drive the tools, and you're not in a
hurry, that's not "hard".  Just "complex".
