The main pages (www.crosswire.org and www.crosswire.org/sword) are where 
most user-oriented material should go, including blurbs about & links to 
software using Sword. It's inconsistent to have half of the software 
links on the main page linking within the Wiki and half linking to 
off-site main pages.

Using the Wiki to perform collaborative document editing, as with the 
FAQ or the Eee guide, is great. But the Wiki isn't the main CrossWire 
page, nor its public face.
