that is IMHO pointing to a new question:

How and where could a "Tips and tricks"-section be maintained in a
comfortable way?

Sacha, JoH and I were planning a snippet archive to collect
tips, experiences and snippets (maybe in a coobook-manner) [1].

I like the way php.net is dealing with the function reference - but the 
board as a comment system has some drawbacks I think. Eg. it gets quite 
hard to distinguish tips and examples in longer lists. Sometimes a new 
post is only a correction of the previous post.

Maybe a wiki is the right place to do it the modern way like this:


@Michael: IMHO we should give this decicion two more minutes to think 
about, don't we?

Asks Christian
