suggested that he go to doc-sig, but now that there are three of you, it
might be worth setting up a temporary special SIG.  Any other takers?

Based on what I'm reading in this thread, the deliverable could well end
up being two separate FAQs, one that gets regularly autoposted here (and
other places) and the heavy-duty informational FAQ (the current FAQ
cleaned up and reorganized).

I'm willing to help do some of the work, but I'm not interested in doing
the organizing or politicking.  ;-)
