Thats a good idea, but by suggesting this are you not implicitly
volunteering to be editor/co-ordinator as well :-)

I think I have implicitly volunteered for
* Recursive types
* Use of constants as types
* Mutable temporaries
* Compile time meta data
* Catch using a function

London contract market is quiet right now, so I have time to have a go
at writing up one, but I will need help writing standardese.

Which one should I do?
Is there a template or examples we can start from?
