I don't think this is enough, for two reasons. Firstly, there are too many links on that page
for me to be able to check them when monitoring for spam. Secondly, it doesn't help our users
who may be reading this page to get an idea of how and why CouchDB is being used. They should
be able to scan through this list, and get that information without having to click outside
of the wiki.

I realise that all the sites YOU do are built on CouchDB, and that they are shining examples,
but this policy should apply to every link on that page, or we may as well not have one. Just
because I happen to know that Friendpaste is powered by CouchDB doesn't mean our next wiki
gnome will.

Benoit, could you update the wiki to explain how or why you have used CouchDB on the sites
you have linked to from there? You're exactly the type of developer I can imagine setting
a great example for others to follow.
