... NOT so "easily done... (with) links to home nodes" /me thinks.

How would TimToady's home node serve as a citation for his role in Perl?

And one could selectively ID some CPAN authors by their home nodes here, but other Monks' have home nodes which make no reference to their modules.

Nonetheless, ++ for noting the liklihood that some Wikipedian will ask citations. Such requests do undermine the credibility of the posted info, unless it's on a topic on which the reader (well, this "reader" anyway) is already knowledgeable.
