Eh... maybe... though JIRA should not be down or slow.  These are  
also static pages, which only pull images off of the JIRA webapp, but  
we could remove the icon from the rendering.  I personally think its  
useful to show some JIRA activity on some page on the website.  Shows  
that we are still moving even if the website content isn't.

Ya, probably some changes to be made... I like the Cayenne site a  
lot... clean, simple... nice popup menus.

Aye, we need a basic theme that works for the main site,  
documentation sites and sub-project sites.

I really would like to see this happen... so I can lend a hand.
