This (attached) is what I have at present. The main focus is on the
navigation box, which is supposed to be an easy route in to the main IPython

One thing I'm not sure about is whether to have a 'more links' section at
the bottom, for things like the talks & presentations section, or the list
of projects using IPython. Do we want to promote these from the homepage, or
is a link from the docs front page sufficient? If we do want to promote
them, I think we should make an effort to keep them up to date.
