I've put a handful of questions up in both the faqomatic faq and a few
less in the trac wiki.  The latter lacks any sort of backward
navigation, the reason being that I'd have to create such navigation by
hand (and edit it if I move a question).  If we decide to go with the
wiki version, I'll (eventually, if someone does not beat me to it), go
back trough and finish.
