Bonjour Éric,
Sure that's an excellent idea. "J'achète" (I am buying it) ;-))
If I well understood this idea, it is the possibility to enter the  
dictionary, non only by a list of function terms (as now) but also  
starting from possible tasks the user  would like to achieve. Very  
interesting from an ergonomics point of view. Actually, the  
dictionnary explains for each term  what task(s) it  allows to  
achieve ; while the users often would like to find for each task (or  
at list each kind of tasks) the possible term(s) to achieve it.
In a few words :
dictionnary = terms --> what task they allow to do
your tutorial = tasks -> what possible terms

That would be a great tool, but a lot of work to achieve it (could be  
little by little ; seems not necessary to be complete to already be  
useful) :-))

Best regards from Grenoble
André
