I like that explanation more than mine.  =)  So I am just going to
keep the FAQ up then.  If there is anything at
http://www.python.org/dev/svn.html people feel should be moved over to
the FAQ that has not occurred yet, let me know.  Please have personal
experience, though, with what you want added so as to make sure the
information is relevant (e.g., Tim suffering through getting an SSH 2
key for Windows and what is exactly needed, complete with screenshots 
=) .
