Well, I think it would still be very interesting to have in-depth 
information about the most active contributors, including an image etc... 
Gives a more personal look.

Yes, I saw this. I'll try and see what I can do with it.
Maybe have like an index page that lists all the authors, with links, and 
then for the pages of the most significant ones, more information with 
picture, several paragraphs, etc.

Well, as far as I can see, most of the 1.0 documentation is going stale 
anyway, so it shouldn't be that much of an issue. Most changes for 1.0 
happen in the Guide anyway by now.

Oh ok, great then! But this means I'll have to watch myself a little :) 
Anyway, really great.
