[Haskell] page names on the new Haskell wiki

the names of the pages of the new MediaWiki-driven Haskell wiki are often 
rather directory names than "article titles" as they are on Wikipedia.  For 
example, the page "Books and tutorials about Haskell" isn't named "Books and 
tutorials about Haskell" or "Books and tutorials" but just "Books".  Another 
example is the GHC documentation page which is named "GHC/Documentation".  
Here the slash is used to express a hierarchy as it's done in UNIX path 
names, for example.  But Wikipedia uses the slash just where it is used 
normally.  For example, the term "I/O" contains a slash and the Wikipedia 
article about I/O is named "I/O".

I propose that we stick to the Wikipedia convention and choose page names 
which are a short description of the page's topic in normal (English) 
language.  Remember, that the page name is not only part of the page's URL 
but also displayed as a title on the page and in the window's title bar.

What do you think?

Best wishes,
