I feel some egoistic satisfaction about this; yet I deem pointing
to FAQ sites worthful (the pointer being someone who knows the
FAQ very well). I acknowledge very much that Robin has
done this often recently, even adding a one- or two-line summary.
I often had severe difficulties with searching FAQ lists
(e.g.: one word yields many irrelevant "hits", two words
yield much more irrelevant "hits" or nothing).
