My only thought on putting this info in the wiki, as opposed to a
minimal mention of it in the output or a related README, is that that
begins to have two places of authority. As we're all discovering, the
code base is *huge*, and having multiple places to maintain, without a
clear jurisdiction of who's "in charge" of each section, and without the
most comprehensive of test suites, suggests to me, that having it in a
single place where folks are guaranteed to see it, is better. I
absolutely agree that the ... "vehemence" of the suggestion should be
toned down to something much more subtle, but I think the
advertisement's rightful place (in this case) is right where it is, or
relatively near there.
In my experience, Wiki's tend to fall victim to the commons, where
everyone takes ownership of not taking ownership.
