With the following caveat: we have a lot of different ways to ask for
help (this list, other lists, answers.ros.org, etc.); we should put
some thought into how people's questions should be directed. "Which
package should I use to do X?" is probably for answers, for example.
"I want elevator support for my PR2" doesn't fit well in either
answers or on this list, so this new tool would be good.

The easiest (and probably best) solution to this is to have ros.org
have a page for "Getting help" that helps people categorize their
question and tells them where to ask.
