I'm not sure how useful this observation is, but to me the face of
Python is docs.python.org, and I like it.  It feels restful and useful.
The main python.org site feels cramped, a bit busy, and confusing,
and I pretty much never go there.

But I'm not a newcomer to Python, I'm a user/developer.

PS: I like docs.python.org so much that I adopted Sphinx and the
docs.python.org color scheme for my own website.  My main page
isn't as useful as docs.python.org, though...I need to fix that.
