Imagine a wiki without a Recent Changes page - the error can stay in it for
days or even weeks before it gets corrected. Such a wiki wouldn't work well.
But that's almost the situation in Wikipedia today - because the Recent Changes
is so huge, very few people will check all articles, and as the topics of articles
become more specialized, chances that non-trivial error will be spotted in RC
are getting lower and lower.
That's a legitimate concern. Perhaps we could have per-category
Recent Changes pages.
