Problem is, what makes sense for one person doesn't necessarily make 
sense for someone else.  What's there is not as well organized as it 
could be, but from my perspective it's not so horribly bad.

That said, perhaps there is some middle ground that might be more useful 
than what we have now, and would make sense to a broader group of people.

IMO, what would be really useful would be a tagging-based system, so 
that a single entry could show up in multiple "sections".  But I think 
that would mean either a complete re-write of the wiki code itself, or 
at least a substantial change to the way we use the wiki.  I'm not sure 
that either of those are feasible in the short term.

I'd say that you have the power to make whatever changes you think 
should be made, and if we don't like them then we can revert to earlier 
versions.  So, feel free to hack away!
