LiveTestServer - we shouldn't advertise support for Windmill (or we should provide some docs)

After an hour or more of messing around, I really can't get anything helpful out of Windmill (at all, really, but especially in conjunction with Django in any kind of automated way)
The docs for it are pretty bad in terms of structure, so you can't just point people to the docs. (e.g: no proper tutorial, the nearest thing to a tutorial tells you to use IPython, but support for IPython > 0.10 is broken, etc etc.)
I've tried Windmill's own django support, which appears to be very broken, or extremely difficult.
So we shouldn't send people down the blind alley of using Windmill when we really don't support it at all.
Alternatively, if we can provide some documentation for how to use it - equivalent to the Selenium stuff - then we should. If the people who worked on this can comment that will help.
