No worries. We were only recently ready to show the solution anyway,
so perfect timing.

A placeholder. But the proposed solution has changed now, see below.

We need to wait until immediately after the release, to change the
version numbers in trunk to be 0.8-dev and reflect that in the docs.
Then we can publish the 0.7 docs as current, and also add the 0.8-dev docs.

The 404 was deliberate, nothing to put there yet. It is a remnant
of my most recent attempt at trying to develop a cohesive website,
and trying to anticipate how it would function post-release. Bleah.

I am much more comfortable with the new solution.

That is all addressed in the branch. All three versions are there
but using a different technique.

Leaving the MOTD issues aside (see below).

In our first demo we had a specific "Other Versions" tab which
did make that more obvious.c
