Revisit the install experience for products delivered via orchestra + juju

Registered by Nick Barcet on 2011-10-27

- lack of discoverability
- many steps
- lack of clean documentation

We need to identify what, when and how to improve this, specifically for Ubuntu Cloud Infrastructure and in general for products delivers via orchestra + juju
