  Cesar just introduced us to yet another way to organize information: 
subpages. I am learning a lot about Wikimedia this week. Here is the 
reference:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Subpages

In short, subpages are pages with a "/" in the title. 

They can be used for organizing pages in a strict hierarchy, but since in the 
real world concepts do NOT form a hierarchy we use categories instead. So 
subpages seem to be actually used for archiving, short-lived forks or user 

The subpage feature can be disabled or enabled in each namespace. Cesar's post 
seems to assume that it is enabled in our main namespace ? This must be 
verified, because in the original English Wikipedia main it is 'off' so that 
titles can include slashes.
