I think the idea of merging the stuff worth keeping into mini-FAQ's in
the Handbook, which has been talked about many times before, is the
way to go.  But of course that requires that somebody actually does
it, and I'm not currently signing up for any more tasks :-).

I'm not sure if the FAQ should then be kept around as a sort of list
of pointers to the mini-FAQ's, I can't really see right now if that
would just cause more trouble than it's worth.
