Yes. Credit for that idea goes to Corey Sweeney.

To evolve the more complete and time-efficient manual
I'm advocating, perhaps turning the pages at
http://download.plt-scheme.org/doc/300/html/ into a
Wiki is the thing to do.  Each page, such as
could come with pre-built formatting of (invisibly
lined) boxes  for the command, synopsis, explanation
and examples, "See Also", and addenda/random user
annotations, and along the left, a TOC.  That would
definitely be taking a page out of  php.net/manual's
book by why not?  That and wiki are good ideas.
