What I (personally) value on the Java Almanach is not so much the "API
reference" but rather the growing set of simple "how-to" code examples,
divided by packages which are a decent equivalent to function. Even doing
Java for a long time I find myself using Java Almanach examples sometimes, if
I need code from an area I did not do before.
I was actually thinking to start an equivalent (Squeak Almanach if you will)
as means of learning Smalltalk/Squeak, but realized this is way bigger than
the few hours a week I seem to gather max. Perhaps it would be an interesting
collaborative effort, if more people would find it useful, there are many
examples on the Squeak wiki that could serve as a start.
