Awesome, I am really starting to like how this is shaping up!

This, along with the new banner design is a *massive* improvement!

Yep, I like the formatting of these links as well and the "dot" separator.

This too looks fantastic - I like the thin grey lines.

Again both of these are great as well.

Some minor comments:

* reduce max-width to something closer to 68-70.  With the current
font sizes, the page still looks slightly too "full" at 75em width.
* reduce the padding on sphinxsidebar to 1em and increase width to
14em to give us a bit more room to content in the sidebar.
* reduce div.document max-width to something around 55em.
* Overall I like the partition of link in the R sidepanel.  But I
think the "Links" section should only contain external links as it is
a bit odd to see a "link" to "Home" here.

I think we need to get Fernando's thoughts (hopefully tonight) and
then start to figure out a good color scheme and make final decisions
on the logo.

But this is a huge step forward - thanks everyone for putting time into this!
