I think we can be in agreeance that the current UserDoc structure will
be used as a temporary measure until the UserDocBeta sub-indexes are
created.  As an intermediary solution is needed, I have begun work on

UserDocDraft is a hybrid and I believe I can knock it over in a few
hours.  I have edited up to and including the Multimedia & Graphics
section - please discuss UserDocDraft before I continue with it..  The
MultimediaMisc page is the key of the intermediary overhaul.

I think the case is just not for slimming it down, it is for making it
more precise and concise.  They are the two keys to good writing, in
general.  The less superfluous pages we have on the Wiki, the better. 
Like I had noted in an email to Brian, I have deleted the unnecessary
RelatedPages pages because they are clutter on the Wiki.  Keep it mean
and lean.
