Draft documentation for Nodequeue 2

Current Readme:
Further resources:
Tutorial (June 7) -

Earl Miles outline of needed documentation:

The starting point is the readme. The documentation needs to describe the following things:

1) What the most basic use of a nodequeue is good for
2) How to create one
3) What a smartqueue is and how subqueues work
4) How to create one
5) How to use nodequeue with Views
6) How to use nodequeue with Actions
7) How to write smartqueue plugins

I've been working on a nodequeue demo site; mostly I've got some fake
content almost ready, and just need to spend 2 or 3 hours on it.

Proposed 8) Based on this comment from yched, "Plus it has an API, which let your own modules use queues as a backend, independantly of the UI."


Basic use of Nodequeue

A nodequeue can be used to feature an arbitrary set of nodes, for instance with a random view with a limit of one in a block, and furthermore have a set order and limit, such as to list "My current top 5 favorite nodes."
