    The idea here is to erase the dividing line between
    a Forum (email archive) and a FAQ.

    If the Forum exists in some sense as a "document",
    then it should be possible to reorganize redundant
    questions so that they come under some basic version
    of the question, with responses under that.

    That produces a structure something like this:

         Q1. As asked by Fred
         Q2. As asked by Ethel
         A1. As answered by Edna
         A2. As answered by Ralph

    In all likelihood, the question-versions would not
    be of general interest.

    Evaluations supplied by users of the system would
    allow the better answers to "float to the top" of
    the answer list, so the best answers or most-common
    scenarios float to the top of the list.

    In accomplishing the reorganization, the original
    Forum "document" is replaced by a new version
    constructed by the forum owner.

    [This mechanism also needs to allow for purging of
    extraneous and nonsensical comments, at the discretion
    of the document owner.]
