+1, though it might be stretching a bit the function of "labs", I think
it is good to share, and create, know-how. A lot of times new tools
imply new and/or modified procedures. As an old manual used to say, when
you give your customers screwdriver and screws instead of hammer and
nail, you need to teach them to screw instead of nailing. :)

But, even if we agree, I'm not really sure how to move it. I guess a
"state of the art" where different people would study different tools
and then put the results together would be already a lot.
