[development] lightbox module comparison

I've done one on the two glossary modules I'm aware of (glossary.module and
g2.module), it's on the g2 project page. Maybe there are more, though ?
This being said, you might have something: module duplication and module
voting being recurrent themes, it might make sense to formalize a rule like:
"if you're doing a module that resembles other modules, create a comparison
page, that will go in the <to be determined> section of the handbook", in
the dev manual.
What do you think of it ?

Subject: [development] lightbox module comparison
There's quite a few modules in Drupal which provide similar but different
functionality. I maintain the lightbox2 module and frequently get asked
"what's the difference between lightbox2 and module X?" So I've finally
created a doc comparing the various "lightbox" type modules available in
Drupal (lightbox2, thickbox, shadowbox, .....). The doc is available at
http://drupal.org/node/266126 for anyone who may be interested.
I'd really like to see more comparisons done on modules which share similar
functionality. I think it would be quite useful to see such a comparison
before downloading all the modules and trying them out one by one,
especially for newbies in the Drupal community. Just my 2 cents.
