What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
==================================================================================
When content from one page is displayed in another page, the displayed page should reflect the contributors of the original page as well.

What problems would this solve?
===============================
This would properly credit our contributors even when their work is used on multiple pages through inclusion macros.

Who would use this?
===================
All contributors would benefit from this.

What would users see?
=====================
The contributor list on the page that's doing transclusion of content from another page would reflect that transclusion.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
No additional work should be required by users.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
The one trick here is what to do when only part of a page is transcluded. We don't have any way to get a list of the people that touched just that part of the page. So do we just add the entire contributor list, do nothing, or...?
