Well, most people dont need the pproxy, and why would you need a faq
for a platform you dont have?

I think a better idea would be to have a package containing the client and
faq, and a seperate package containing the pproxy and the faq.
Basicly, just add the faq to the packages containing client/faq
if it isnt there already (I dont think it is, i don't actually remember)
And perhaps put a bit more info about the pproxy into the client docs.

Urm, well, that is exactly what the master key server is doing to people
without pproxies (OK, actually the master key server doles out portions
of a problem to proxies, which dole it out to workstations, or pproxies
which then dole it out to a workstation).
