Hmmm...I fall into that second camp, mostly because I often do 
python coding via ssh, and it's handy to use 
lynx/links/links2/elinks/w3m (whatever happens to be available on 
the machine in question) to browse the site.

The site is easily navigated in Lynx, has the 
"search" function right up at the top (okay, link #6, when 
numbered-links are turned on, but that beats #50 down in the 
downloads section).  I can give it a whirl accessibility-wise, 
using VoiceOver and Safari when I get back to my Mac.
