It sounded like you were arguing for separating the information I was
describing into two batches, one of which includes all the stuff that
"non-technical" people want to read, and the other of which includes
the rest. I simply oppose distributing the basic information needed
by "technical" people across multiple pages. I think I might also
object to having information for "non-technical" people on the front
page, to the exclusion of information for everyone else. If moving
any of this off the front page is appropriate, it should probably all
go under an "About" link.
