To be an integrator you have to get into the code. We are kidding 
ourselves if we think otherwise. So this cheatsheet is really an 
integrator cheatsheet. Its for people that want to put togeather 
customized solutions and that in my experience involves combining off 
the shelf products and custom code. Even doing themeing now involves 
coding (bad but true).

So there is

- developers/integrators (we should call them developers. everyone else 
- end users
- core developers.

my 2c anyway.
