I've rather gone off wiki-based docs. I think the model leads to poorly
curated information dumps, where nobody feels responsibility for the page
as a whole, and every bit of information is left there in case it's useful
to someone somewhere. Plus, for documenting code, Sphinx is just a much
nicer and more powerful system.

Please don't. I think it's much better rendered in the docs, and has a
better chance of being kept up to date if changes are needed.
