Jeanne, as you know, I've advocated a Rev cookbook for a long time. You guys
should consider a web form or something to allow folks to submit potential
cookbook topic recipes. There are simply a ton of handlers which could be
examined this way. Hopefully, the cookbook will offer cut-and-paste much
like the rest of the documentation, which would make it almost like a
library of usable behaviors at the same time as a training tool.

Just a thought.
