The problem is that there is only and only one Download link / menu item
at the main page, and I hate to add another one or impose more levels of
indirection. So, this sole link, where should take you to ? To up-to-date
brief one or more polished outdated one ? Either way you'll take it, you
will confuse or create a space to confuse someone.
We were at all that before, more than once. Believe me, we were :-) But I
still listen to your arguments.
