At one point I tried to find a general solution to this question.  I got 
Klaus Schmid interested enough that he put up a prototype page here:


Ideally, I think this kind of website should be wikified, and/or 
integrated into bookselling websites (so that, for example, people 
searching for an out-of-print book would be able to vote publicly to bring 
it back into print).  I made a few stabs at this, and succeeded in getting 
a few books back into print (Welsh's Matroid Theory, Cassels and 
Frohlich's Algebraic Number Theory), but eventually decided that it would 
require a bigger investment of time and energy than I was willing to put 
in at the time, but I remain hopeful that someone will take up the baton.
