Genesee: If your XO is your only computer, then please don't use
joyride at all. Developers need a place where to break everything
(including all data in the laptop) in order to do their job, and that
place is now joyride.

All: seems like we have failed to explain what can be expected from
joyride builds. How can we better warn of the breakage that joyride
builds can cause?
