Doesn't this demonstrate the problem with Wikipedia?

   Content pages       3,805,705
   Pages              25,581,176
   (All pages in the wiki, including talk pages, redirects, etc.)

And is that content page edits, or just all page edits?

Not really, since it includes redirects e.g.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%22Weird_Al%22_Yankovic

has 40 redirects for various mispellings and variations
