Might be better to move the documentation into PHP and generate it using 
templates. Moving the data into the language files, I think, makes it easier to 
keep it up to date.

A function is a cleaner interface. How do you what the name of the language 
array is?

I hate all variable level dependencies. Function level dependencies at least can 
be recoded/refactored. Once you create a variable level dependency you are stuck 
with it. That's also why I made the COM_newTemplate patch. Ultimately, I'd like 
to see USER, GROUPS, CONF, PLUGINS and all the language arrays disappear as 
well. It would happen soon but I think it should be a goal, perhaps for a real 
Geeklog 2.0.
