Yes, yes, go ahead and change the page as you like. Getting it just
right is harder than it seems, though. Meanwhile I shall admonish
contributors to bear in mind that our first audience is those expecting
a web-site on Haskell and not necessarily interested in this "wiki"

I'm hoping readers will just click on a category page and see a little
index of relevant articles, and understand what it's about. I can edit
the structure of category pages if necessary. Nevertheless it may be
appropriate to make it clearer on the front page whether or not a link
is a page with actual content or merely one of these indexy-things.
Editing the website, on the other hand, takes us in MediaWiki territory.
More prominent links to editing help on Wikipedia might be appropriate;
strictly speaking I can't just copy it across for copyright reasons.
