I think it is a good idea to put these things in the scipy pages
(whereever appropriate).  This also makes it easier for folks to edit
content since their existing logins will work and they won't have to
maintain yet another login/password elsewhere.  Overall I think it
would be cool if more folks do this.  More eyeballs, more folks
editing related pages.

I don't know what the others think about this though.
