Somehow the smiley face I put with my suggestion was dropped. Sorry you
missed the subtle point, e.g.,

"Please let us know when you have it up and running, John. ;-)"

OTOH, I may have misread the context of John's remarks, thinking the issue
was about *if* a Perl FAQ *could* be implemented as a Wiki, rather that *if*
such a Perl FAQ *should* be implemented. I was already aware that a well
established process for ongoing development of the Perl FAQ is already in
place, e.g., see

Quite so, Axel. I was just trying to answer the questions posed by John
Bokma. Whether such a FAQ *should* be done is another issue, as you have

The only issue I have with your statement is that the phrase "And then"
should be replaced with "First,".
