I'm still working on gaining a fuller understanding of all this.

Also, I don't just want to know 'what', but also 'why'.

The 'what' on it's own, just gives you a very limited 
understanding, which is problematic when things go wrong.

The problem with existing wiki (well, one of it's problem) is it 
lacks a good explanation of precisely why you need what.

The most complex part at the moment, is working out 'precisely' 
what VS components you need, and why.

Ideally, the whole thing (installing VS/DMD/DMC/GIT/) could be 
open scripted as well.

I don't like the process being hidden behind some executable 
thing, like
dub digger dogger... ....
