How do you see this taking shape - as a gopher/WWW site?  This would get my
vote!  Would it need a separate newsgroup for discussing problems with the
techniques listed, or could that be done here?  (I would prefer the latter). 
It still sounds like it would be a huge job to get it organised into a usable
format, but I think that it would be a very worthwile thing to do!
