I am facing this now in rndCiv, if each effect had a hint
to explain what it does, that could be assembled to produce
readable help text - this would also be useful for i18n.
i'll have a look

Vasco, thanks for the work on effects, 

Does Air_Defend work for Heli attacks ?

Can the group idea also be applied to Governments? units?

;   type        = requirement type; one of:
;                 "None", "Tech", "Gov", "Building", "Wonder","Special",
;                 "Terrain".

can you add unit type ( Land, Sea, Air, Heli, Missile ) to the 
above list? that will make it easier to specify "aff_unit" options.

Can i define a building "Tree Farm"
with effects that only work on "Forest tiles with roads on them"

ie, in the old way "Tree Farm" looked like this...
effect          = 
    { "type",           "range", "value", "aff_terr", "aff_spec"
      "Trade_Per_Tile", "City",   1,      "Forrest",  "Road"
      "Food_Inc_Tile",  "City",   1,      "Forrest",  "Road"
      "Pollu_Prod_Pct", "City",   50 
can the effects patch specify this?

Would it make sense to have another effect range, 
national - to mean inside your borders ?

on my wishlist..
 - a range that covered all units from this city
 - a range that was distance from the city
     with either constant or declining power
 - Spy & Diplomat flags broken up
