I'm to far behind on lots of stuff to comment on this massive thread,
so just a few thoughts:

- The nav bar at the top (Home . Download ...) is great, but the font
for it should be larger, and/or boldfaced, I think.  Right now that
sort of gets lost between the  banner logo and the title.

- Perhaps a little more color somehwere?  I don't think we need to
turn the site into a circus tent, but it feels too bright white for my
taste, enough to actually feel a little blinding.  I think a small
amount of color, in moderation (and with visual balance helped by some
of the color scheme sites that have been mentioned), would look nice
and reduce the glare a little.  Just a thought.

- Search box? Since it's made in sphinx, we can leave the default
sphinx search and it will work inside the site automatically.

But even if you were to leave it as-is, it's such a massive
improvement already, that I can only cheer.

Many, many thanks to everyone who has helped here, this is great.
