Yeah, that's cool, although we do not have any way such things can be
embedded on wiki currently (we could certainly look at adding something
similar to GuidedTour). Do you use a headless browser like PhantomJS
for the screenshots?

To be honest, I'm not sure right now if/how it can fit into our plans.
Of course right now we have a different architecture and tour format
Also, we have some things that may or may not have equivalents in
hook/event fired by part of our codebase to know when the tour is ready
to proceed. For example, the VisualEditor can tell us if the page is
now save-able, so we know whether to point to the save button,
regardless of how the page became save-able (typing, bolding some text
with the toolbar, etc.).
