Drupal Rules and View Bulk Operations

Edit 20140319: There is a great screencast from DrupalCon London about Entity Construction Kit... in that presentation, from about minute 27 to minute 30, the presenter, Jeni Tehan, demonstrates how to create a rule that shows up in the VBO list ( http://youtu.be/hhUuv1cEgVY?t=26m59s ). It is a little more straightforward than the process I outline below. Instead of creating a rule

User expire

The Drupal User expire module "allows an administrator to define a date on which to expire a specific user account or to define a period at a role level where inactive accounts will be locked."

Field group

"Fieldgroup will, as the name implies, group fields together. All fieldable entities will have the possibility to add groups to wrap their fields together. Fieldgroup comes with default HTML wrappers like vertical tabs, horizontal tabs, accordions, fieldsets or div wrappers."

Understanding Panels styles

It's hard to find really good documentation on creating custom ctools style plugins, like the stylizer that comes bundled with panels. For example, if you search the web, you'll come up finding a link to http://dustinbons.com/panels-styles-plugin-drupal-7 which is not really a very good tutorial. If you view the advanced help module page on this, it comes up blank.
