It _would_ be nice if we could possibly move all of the FAQ's and 
users/development guides to the wiki..  That way it would be easier to 
maintain, as you could do it from any computer, and not have to edit 
sgml, submit a patch, etc..

I could help with porting it all in my free time, now that the bug 
submits have calmed down somewhat..  This would give me a chance to 
update some of the outdated information and just do general cleanups..

Any objections?  If not Ill start work on it on Monday, and just put it 
under new users called FrequentQuestions UserGuides and DevelGuides with 
a password we can all remember, something like 1234, who knows?
