I'm not sure whether mirrors usually will want to run "imported" scripts,
but anyway, in that case we can always refer to our main site, as we do
for the mailing list archives.

Sooo, there are no real issues concerning the F-O-M left, where I see
potential problems. :-)

How shall we proceed in removing the old FAQ?  Remove the link and
truncate faq.html to only include a reference to the F-O-M and a link
to the new location of the Bug Reporting Instructions?

(We'll have to keep faq.html for the next couple of years, BTW, because
of the link to the Bug Reporting Instructions in the egcs and GCC 2.95
