You're absolutely right, Skip. The current Python lib ref manual front
page is not nearly as useful as that module index page.

Perhaps it's time for a reorganization? The main lib ref page has
gotten rather bloated, and it's pretty hard to find the necessary
information. Maybe we could go for a Yahoo-style categorization
rather than the huge delimited list we have now.
