Jumping in with questions and answers

I just came across To Answer, Or Not To Answer. The gist of it is: someone asked "Should I answer a perl question when I'm not sure of the answer or when I can only answer part of the question?" and got overwhelming "yes" answers (and very good suggestions on how to handle uncertainty), because even if your answer doesn't help the person asking, researching your answer (and thinking about the question) may well help you. So as an experiment, I'd like to try something similar in this entry:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in the discussion I linked to above.

If this works, I'll try to make it a regular feature of this community. (How often should it happen?)

Why both esn-process-sub and process-esn?

Habit? :)
