The interesting part of this is that there's already such navigation
links in the content. It's just that I never found a good style to put
them into the top, so it's hidden at this time (you can see them if you
turn of the default style in your browser). I do have a style in mind
now, but it also means changing the header style slightly. Hence I
haven't gotten around to having enough time to devote to implementing
those style changes (along with various typographical ones from
discussions on the doc list).
