This sounds like a good idea.  I'm certainly willing to put my time in 
to clean things up.  I've been doing some of it already when I come 
across things that either aren't clear or aren't linked well.

If we could gather a team of four, maybe five/six, community members, 
and devise/discuss a plan to organize and clean up the wiki, and then 
get everyone in the mailing lists, IRC, etc to promote and encourage use 
and modifying the wiki, I think it would go a very long way.
