$deity just killed a few hundred kittens.
At OEDEM we decided that we won't tolerate kindergarten-like,
hand-holding wrappers around bitbake. Typing 'bitbake vim' isn't rocket
science. To paraphrase Mickey: "If typing 'bitbake <foo>' is too hard,
you shouldn't be using OE".
At OEDEM we also discovered that people we clueless about various
pitfalls documented in local.conf.sample, so I'm also unsure if we
should make it recommended practice to generate a working local.conf.
The killswitch is in local.conf.sample for a good reason; it forces
people to read it.

And the makefile should stop after setting it up.
