My understanding is that with 0.7.6 and later, the default page
won't be the waterfall anymore. In the 0.7.6 release notes, it

# The initial page (when you hit the root of the web site) is served
# from index.html, and provides links to the Waterfall as well as the
# other pages.

In the 0.7.9 release notes, it says

# The html.Waterfall status target was replaced by html.WebStatus in
# 0.7.6, and will be removed by 0.8.0.

But then, I have not tried installing it, so I don't know what it
actually looks like.
