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.

(BTW the examples not seem to be at )
