If you (or anyone else who's been participating in the discussion, or
anyone else) would like to do a wikibook, that would be great.
Personally, I'd like to write / be involved in organizing the writing
of a dead-trees book. (In theory, it could be both, but it seems to me
like short of being Larry Lessig, there's not really a way to get a
publisher to publish something that's already released under a free
documentation license -- but correct me if I'm wrong.)
