How about either Wiki'ing it, or perhaps have some form of rating
(e.g. I think I'm rated 5/10 in my MySQL knowledge OR I got you to do
some work for me, and you scored a 9/10)? That way, you get *YOUR*
knowledge level identified, and the person who you worked for gets to
grade your work. Perhaps, like the Hot-or-not site, your score only
gets listed once you've had 5 ratings? Or perhaps, it could be a bit
more social-networky where you trust person A, and if person B trusts
you, then you trust person A 75%?

Hmmmm... all possibilities ;)
