Is this now stable enough to update the Wiki?  Is it too soon to remove
directions for the releases no longer supported by openSUSE (13.1, 13.2, 42.1 &
42.2), while adding TW?

Is Packman still required for any popular or required functionality? The
openSUSE devs frown on rpms dependent on Packman packages for essential
functionality. Packman software is supposed to be optional. While TDE is
technically optional, it's not optional in the same sense as most Packman software.
