I think that's a distinct improvement, although I'd suggest putting
the Documentation section (in the sidebar) _first_ rather than second
after the Versions section.  I'd also move FAQ up to right under "What 
is Python?".  

Although the FAQ has grown a little too large for its current structure, 
I think, more people should spend the time to read the whole thing, and 
perhaps would in time for it to be useful (i.e. before they ask a FAQ) 
if it were more prominent.

(You mention different top navbar links but they look the same to
me, if you're talking about the Home/Search/Download stuff at the top.)
