Making the wiki into a one-stop support resource!

Hi Karl,

I used to have everything accessible from one page. It was pointed out to
me that it would become a nightmare, and it did. Imagine trying to have
both of our FAQ pages in one place, along with every other page that they
point to. In fact, the FAQ pages now need splitting as they are far too
large. Once the dust settles and the wiki/docs team have finalised the
diverting of all the old pages, next up will be an index. Auto Generating
an index page is easy.... getting one that doesn't scare people is much
more difficult. Rest assured, it is on the 'TODO' list. If you'd like to
help in this task, please join the wiki/docs team.

@Chris, I hope you don't mind my replying to this one - I was mainly
responsible for "frankenstiens monster" that your team has doggedly cleaned
