True.. we can create directories more like Torry.net instead of things like PasWiki
which sometimes are biased and fanboy-ish ;-) I guess I think its a good idea to
outsource the web development to people like me, you, and freepascal users - so
Michael, Daniel, Jonas, Florian, Peter, and all those others can work on the compiler
and documentation instead of website designs.

"Contributed Programs" section. Let the users manage the directory (outsourcing the
work, just like how "contributed units" section is outsourced and requires little/no
maintenance from FPC team).
