Yes, there's some truth to that. Those sections could be more inviting
or informative in general. I suspect that may have been one factor in
people deciding to host their own libraries rather than contributing
to AstroLib, though no-one here has said so. However, it's actually
the WHOLE of scipy.org that's a wiki (I even just did a minor edit on
the front page...).

I think there's no reason not to put user documentation on the same
pages; there just isn't any there yet.

Cheers,

James.
