I agree, it has no place offline. It could actually help if some
stats from the online tracking were published to this list though.
Docs with high traffic (relative to other docs from the same lib)
might help indicate people are having a hard time remembering how to
use some code, and could use better explaining (or better code) so
they remember the first time.
