Yes, but I can not possibly see why would anyone want to download and
read the FAQ like this. A FAQ is essentially a Web type of document,
best view and browsed on the Web. By including it in those packages,
we just make them bigger for 99.99% of the users that don't care
about the FAQ, and those users are probably the ones that have most
bandwidth restrictions anyway.

But I'm not totally against it being there, if people feel strongly
that we must, I'll go with the flow.
