Didn't I reply to it when you first suggested it? I thought I had...anyways
what I wanted to say at any rate is "good idea I'll get on it".

There are two ways I can do it:

1) send a plain txt file.
2) send a bz2'ed txt file

problem with no #1 is that the faq is about 28 KB. I'm sure that not
everybdoy would appreciate this.

Then again, even if you're on a modem and get say 3 KB/sec it would take
less than 10 seconds to download it.

Yeah and of course if you subscribe to lfs-support you get way more than 28
KB a day in messages. So...I'd say just the plain txt that saves having to
unpack and it might be read right away.
