I agree. All the information on the people page is currently optional
anyway (including being listed, at all), so adding another piece of
optional information like this shouldn't be a problem.

I'm in favor of adding this. It is especially useful for new community
members, in addition to long-time contributors who simply haven't had
the opportunity of meeting everyone.
