I'd put it just above </body>.  That way everyone knows to go to the
bottom of the page.  I see lots of sites putting things like contact,
legal notices, and stuff like that there; it's reasonably consistent.
We should also have a second sitemap link there.

Yeah, I'm just not sure it belongs on the front-page side navbar.  They
certainly should receive more prominence on other pages.  I also think
that PEPs tend to get misunderstood by people who don't already
understand the Python development process.
