Some commentary on the Wiki article:

The "Making a new wallet" section doesn't really tell you how to do that.  It's easy enough to figure out, but for clarity's sake, would be nice.  It is also somewhat unclear when referring to making a wallet with a password what exactly is being referred to.

Would like to see more detailed information on switching back and forth between two wallets.

Just as an example, I backed up and moved my wallet file, and noticed I had to re-scan the block chain.  Not a big deal, and I think it mentions it, but perhaps some more elaboration on when it does and doesn't need to rescan the block chain would be nice.

Someone more knowledge than myself would be appreciated for updating the wiki - with everything going on lately I think we should focus on making it not only hacker proof but idiot proof.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.
