Sorry to hijack this thread, but this comment does bring up an important 
point: The wiki really is confusingly organized. There's lots of overlap 
between different high-level categories and between individual entries, 
making it hard to find things sometimes. This is understandable given the 
organic way in which a wiki grows, but IMHO, it may be time to "trim the 
tree," as it were, and do some high-level editorial maintenance on the wiki. 
Some of this would be a matter of adding, deleting, and removing links, but 
some of this would require merging multiple existing entries into single 
entries, splitting other big entries into multiple entries, and even cleaning 
up the structure of existing entries. Making such changes would be a pretty 
massive undertaking and could easily step on peoples' toes, but I thought I'd 
bring it up to see if there's any interest in putting together a group to do
