On a wiki trying to encourage public contributions, having a contributors 
list may be highly desirable. I am not sure if I would want to see the 
ever-growing list on each page view. Perhaps a variant of 
?action=diff  could be used just to display the contributor names and 
dates. Say ?action=contrib?
