I'm glad this idea is being put forward, as I have also proposed a TYPO3 
cookbook at various occasions. May I suggest to shamelessly steal ideas 
from the Python cookbook, out of which they even made a (very good) book 
(http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Python/Cookbook/), especially:

1. comments (there exists a general comments plugin in TER which we 
could reuse for that, or the one working on typo3.org although I don't 
know if it's public and/or generally usable).

2. Ratings/Editor's Pick/Snippet of the week/month/year/all time

3. Let's see if we can use this extension as a generic example for a fe 
plugin because we have:
1. Simple ext table for snippets, categories, comments
2. BE *and* FE editing (so we might use/develop some generic frontend 
editing lib which uses $TCA for form rendering)
3. List, category, single view with comments...

This looks pretty generic, in the sense that a *lot* of plugins do 
basically the same thing (only with other labels/tables), right?
