I totally agree with Bulat here: The current state with 2 Wikis is totally 
confusing IMHO. So whatever we do, it should result in a single Wiki. And 
while we are currently very focused on technical aspects, one should not 
forget aesthetics: The current Trac Wiki looks horrible and a bit 
unprofessional compared to other Wikis. Keep in mind that this Wiki will be 
the first thing newbies will see about Haskell, and changing a bad first 
impression later will be hard. I know that the appearance is only a very 
superficial thing compared to the contents, but try to sell Haskell in your 
company given the current Trac Wiki look when your boss is used to things 
like Wikipedia, Flash, Shockwave and shiny PowerPoint presentations. :-] 
Perhaps improving this is only a matter of using decent style sheets or 
something like that, I don't know, but I just wanted to raise my concerns...
