This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Will the Stack Exchange team do it themselves? I doubt it. It would require a lot of manpower without much benefit for them. It's a lot of stuff to comb through to select the cream of the crop.
Can it be done by someone who has the time/money? Sure! Anyone is allowed to make a book with Stack Overflow questions and answers, so long as it is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.
