...which would mean that whenever you rearrange something inside the
wiki, you'd have to drag signatures around (and god forbid you
accidentally drop a single one).  The only way out would be to assign
copyright of contributions to some central entity, so the attribution
would always be "(C) The Haskell Wiki Foundation" or something.  Anyone
willing to found or find a suitable non-profit organisation?

Sounds like a stupid idea?  Thought so.  A wiki should be public domain,
plain and simple.  (Put contributions with a different license somewhere
else and link to them.  No big deal.)

People with great minds talk about ideas.
People with ordinary minds talk about things.
People with small minds talk about other people.
