That makes a lot of sense -- thanks for making up that page.  There
are obvious advantages for such a page: people can see things within
the nice unified world of wikipedia that they're used to -- it's true
that we make our examples very obvious, but at least I know exactly
the kind of users that you're talking about -- I'm an example of this
too, every time that I just click a wikipedia link to get a brief
overview since I'm too lazy to start navigating a new site.
