I don't agree that this (and, for that matter, every other recipe) 
should have two different installation instructions for farm and 
non-farm installs just because someone with a farm might want to 
physically place the recipe in a field, instead of simply invoking it 
from the local field config.

Does anyone think that JB has the better approach here and, if so, 
should it be adopted for all recipes?
