Hi, I just saw demo page, and please allow me to comments that Sphinx 
system looks great as always, but header on demo page does not look 
good. It's too dark with unnecessary gradient background image. 

Following Sphinx or matplotlib portal, with some graphic is good idea, 
and other is just try same colors as footer for header wrapper (together 
with 3/4px bottom border)
