Dusty and I talked some months ago about overhauling the navigation of
archweb and making everything a drop-menu from the top.  I sent you
some quick mockups back then to illicit feedback, but they probably
got buried under more pressing issues.

I think the web navigation needs completely revamped--most folks don't
even know the sidebar links are there, and others miss the top
navigation (though I don't know how).  If we incorporate into a single
place, either the sidebar (ala Debian) or top menus (ala Web 2.0) I
think it will bring focus to the page as a whole.
