Users who don't want to waste time with reading, also won't want to 
waste time with videos - in detail when they found out after the first 
video that the demonstrated feature does not fit their needs.

IMO the wiki should be structured in a strict way, e.g. all "search" 
features should be summarized together. Two subsections "search 
what/where" and "search how". Quick/incremental search obviously should 
go into the "search how" category.

Could it be extended by a list of favorites? I.e. a configurable list of 
currently used/related/important procedures - similar to bookmarks, but 
more expressive with only the names of procedures (or types...).
