    $\begingroup$ @KyleKanos I claim no credit for any of the ideas in this post, other than realizing that while MSE has such an index, we didn't thus far. The link-back thing should be added to the existing faq questions, over a suitably drawn-out period to avoid flooding the meta front page. $\endgroup$ Commented May 12, 2019 at 14:36
