FreeBSD has no installer at list.  Should it ?  Only a few
people tend to work on & know the constraints of the installer,
many people over years have have made suggestions & comments, would
it be more efficient if FAQs were auto archived & easily found in
an installer at archive ?

My comments/ wish list
    - One text mode (non bitmap graphical) browser: 	/usr/ports/www/lynx
    - Still too complex for blind/ partially sighted people with special I/O
      phsical devs, I guess.
    - There are small clones of standard vi, with executables
      no larger than ee, could replace ee.
