Note that en:wp is more British than might be expected - according to
a 2007 statistics run (by Greg Maxwell?), 50% of edits on en:wp are
from the US and 25% are from the UK, even though the population ratio
is 5:1. So UK residents edit 2.5x as much as US residents per capita.
(I use this stat to correct UK journalists who think of Wikipedia as
an American thing.)
