Site Template identifiers for use with STSADM

For those CLI geeks out there like me I really enjoy using stsadm for creating new site collections, etc. One of the things I always keep looking for are those identifiers for specifying the site template for the new site collection. I have gathered a list now of available ones and give them to you with this post.
