Perhaps in a FAQ-ish format/snippet repository? How do I...? Can Zope 
do... Perhaps the old ZDP thoughts about the CoolFaq design (much 
simplified) could be of use? Using keywords would make them easily 
accessible and indexable from a ZCatalog.

And, yes, I think reviewing would be a good idea, especially as 
everyone could post snippets. Faulty code, or two different answers 
to the same question (but different) are (obviously) more confusing 
than enlightening.
