Even after reading the FAQ, I'm still asking myself:
Are questions specific to programming/coding issues allowed on magento.se, or are they not (and should be migrated to stackoverflow.com)?
I'd hope that they are valid here.
Magento SE should cover a scope of questions through the different abstraction layers.
If we moved
1. to Server Fault,
2. to Stack Overflow - then all we'd be left answering trivial questions for store owners, eg.
How do I add a product?
How can I change a category picture?
