You might be on to something there.

Recipes would be "Create a Blog" -- the page would point to the  
separate methods to do so, which modules you might need, etc.

It's like "bake a cake" -- rather than which brand of flour to use,  
it would say "well, this double-sifted cake flour over here will give  
you a lighter texture.  If you do that and add this pure vanilla  
extract, you get a 'white cake', and with this cocoa, you get...."

So recipes become REAL recipes.  And the tools and ingredients for  
the recipes are separate?

Recipes for...
* User Authentication
* Anti-Spam security
* Blogging
* Forums
* Comments


And each page points to the resources or combinations thereof, which  
are documented on their own pages...?

Is that overly complicated?  People are asking after more and more  
"how do I combine these?" and "which method should I use, since there  
are 6 ways of doing this?"
