There is a big reason that it remains a beast.  It is very easy to print
out a monolithic file for future reference.  Printing out a bunch of
small files that are hyperlinked together is a real pain, though, and
makes it less useful in the "dead tree format".  Ziv at one time was
taking my basic FAQ and adding minimal hyperlinks, but I asked him to
stop, since our two versions ended up being out of sync by as much as
two versions.  I see the FAQ as something useful to the Oly user in the
field, not something people only read at their computer. :)  Besides,
who knows, maybe this FAQ will eventually become "Son of Shipman".
