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
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.
