Well, the FAQ is a good quick reference document -- I have a lot of experience
maintaining the PyGTK FAQ [1], and it is acessed a *lot* more frequently
than the reference or tuturial. 

And this in particular makes for a good FAQ entry, because it's a simple
and frequent question -- no matter what we want, people are reluctant to
read through the whole docs to find one miserable answer :-)
