How to reset Lion back to the Setup Assistant

I've done this so I can update & install software before handing it to tech-shy/novice people who won't, for example, know about installing Flash, but who should choose their own password.

Exactly.

I've also done it before selling a computer after doing a clean install to make sure all the software I was selling with it was installed/registered (for stuff like iLife).

I'll add a "mee too". I've done this over the years when gifting my old machines to my family. It makes the machine feel new to them while having 3rd party things already installed.
