Agreed, but what we have now works fine. I won't be putting too much more
time into organizing the additional material. Given it's very small volume,
I don't think it's an issue: The extra page can be scanned into about 10
seconds. Hammering on it might get us down to 9 seconds...

I'll see about adding this. Even if I do, the convenience links for the
mailing lists will remain.

I can't stick "Python libraries and programs" into that sidebar.
"webware-announce" is as big as I want to get if I can help it.
People will just have to make leap of faith that Parnassus is something
benevolent and interesting (otherwise why would we put it there?). In a
sense, we probably don't need Parnassus at all, but the little Python link
looked lonely. :-)
BTW You won't see my changes yet, I'm still going through suggestions. I'll
announce when I upload version 3.
