Hm. In the end once I'm happy with the design, and I am very close to 
being happy, we'll proceed from there, unless someone can convince me 
otherwise. I use my special Zope Foundation powers here. :) That said, I 
think feedback from a range of people can be useful.

Yes, this is actually, I think, the same as my feedback, effectively. A 
top row of major categories, similar to the menu in version 3, without 
the dropdowns, with a sidebar of categories too.

Right, while some margins would be all right with me too, the version 3 
layout has *smaller* margins on at least my screen, and I was looking to 
replicate some of that structure in the new version.
