A "FAQikki?"  (I almost thought that you had invented a new term, but  
since "wiki" has only a single "k," it would be "FAQiki" then, right?)

A Fabulous idea, regardless of the name!

Indeed, new folks often make "old" requests... simply because there  
isn't an easy way [or is there?] to determine if the subject has  
already come up.
