Do Google sitemaps have effect?

I just looked over Google webmaster tools which looks like interesting way to get some information from Google about page ranking, top search where it is being listed and crawler found errors on pages. It also suggests everybody to supply sitemap with information about last update time of pages on site.

I found plugin for MediaWiki so I added it to phpMyAdmin wiki, generating it for this blog was pretty easy as here is only static content and for phpMyAdmin demo server with few indexable pages it was trivial. However I'm not yet convinced to invest much effort in creating sitemap for cihar.com as it is too complicate to create. Let's see if sitemap will make Google sooner index my changes.
