I agree.

These are all already available under support.typo3.org (categorization, 
commenting, ratings, no extra cost). Plus, a visitor can search all the 
mailing lists plus snippets at once instead of doing a mailing list 
search on one site then going to another site to search snippets. Also, 
forum visitors can request that a particularly helpful post be turned 
into a snippet directly, and forum users can be set up as "experts" on 
specific areas of expertise (to help disseminate knowledge). The KB is 
also RSS enabled so people can subscribe to each category they're 
interested in. Contact me offlist and I can set you up as a KB 
administrator so we can start getting some new snippets in.
