Hi Robin,
I'm absolutely convinced that it's worth carrying on with the FAQ.

At TUG-2008 (Cork) Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard and me asked Jonathan Kew
for an extesion to TeXworks.  The idea was to provide an interface for
texdoc and your FAQ.  It should allow users to enter the name of a
package and get the package documentation as a PDF file (located by
texdoc) or to search for a term in your FAQ.  Unfortunately Jonathan
had no time to implement it.

But I'm still convinced that it's desirable to make documentation
accessible directly from the TeXworks GUI.  Stackexchange is
undoubtedly a great thing.  But unlike your FAQ, it has a big
drawback: it's not part of TeX Live.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
