I have to say I don't understand the dramatization either.  Often in these
discussions, python.org is portrayed as out of date, old-fashioned, etc.
in the worst of terms.  All of these sites have a different design, of course,
but I can't see how they are vastly superior to python.org.

Of course, python.org lacks the big shiny "download" button.  I can't help
wondering if having a big shiny "download" button is really a requirement,
or if it's just fashionable at the moment.

Take for example perl.org -- their menu items are "Home", "Learn",
"Documentation", "CPAN", "Community", "Get involved" and a bit off
"Download" and "About Perl".  python.org has "About", "News",
"Documentation", "Download", "Community", "Foundation", "Core development",
"Links".  Where's the big difference?

In short, I can't see what the big fuss is about and would be content with a
slight modernization of the design, and maybe a few rearrangements of
menu items.
