Also svn commits are open for review and we also put them onto the 
-changes list to seperate change mails and actual discussion. We don't 
need to discuss every wiki change, but we can start of a thread from 
-changes as we do for commit reviews. So I would prefer to send these 
mails to -changes.

Sounds like a good idea. Although I wouldn't say the From: thing has 
high priority...

We should put up an official announcement once we enabled this to 
encourage more users to contribute to the wiki.
