I have dozens to hundreds of snippets which would be useful to me and
probably others hosted on a site somewhere. Many are too insignificant
for the wiki, I feel. Also the system would be a total success or
failure on the search system (indexing code isn't easy, and tags can
grow out of hand). But no harm in throwing something up to see how
people use it.
