Hey Guys,

I was thinking about adding some documentation for LAVA roughly based on 
the presentation I did last week. Paul mentioned during the presentation 
that my suggestions of using virtualenv and pip commands were no longer 
needed and that you could use lava-deployment-tool.

I just started to play with lava-deployment-tool on my dev box, but 
stopped. After patching it to support Ubuntu Precise, the tool wanted to 
start installing lots of things(like apache) and make changes to my 
system (like upstart jobs).

It seems to me lava-deployment-tool is really cool, but is more for 
production and not for a more simple scenario where you just want to 
prototype some changes.

Is my conclusion wrong, or do you guys think its still worth documenting 
my scenario, where you use virtualenv and a few pip commands? I think 
documentation like this would end with a "next steps: lava-deployment-tool".
