Good speech!

Some milleniums ago, I hardly remember, I wished to have some templates 
around just to fill in. Soon, within a few years I think, I found that 
there are much too many styles or classes around to achieve this goal: 
you might need a zillion of them, all possible and insane combinations 

It would be no great effort but of great merit to have a place where 
corrections for buggy commercial cls files are kept, where users could 
deposit their own creations as a self-explaining template. I myself 
would like to have a broader choice between more letter formats, for my 
own personal use or to re-design some company's or department's letter 
head in LaTeX. What tricks could be used to lead the words from page 2 
back to the first one? I still have to invent such things ...

And a poll: what classes are actually used? How many where created once 
and never again used? Couldn't we split them between theoretical ones 
and those of practical use? (actual thoughts of a non-scientific LaTeX
