I really like the idea of a self extending data base. I have an idea,
although I don't know if this is possible (but I hope so).

Can the debian faq that results be packaged? Two ways seems appropriate:

* Standard way in /usr/doc, various formats provided.
* With cgi scripts, so that I can write additions local (sparing online
time), and that will get send via mail to the right person.

The debian package should be build as often as the database changes, on a
weekly or later on a monthly base perhaps? 

Can this be done?

Sure. It will explode, I think (and the user list will cripple and vanish ;)

Good work, Igor!
