If you look at the actual links, you'll see I'm pretty much forcing 
people to download from the mirrors.  I provide direct links only to the

Perhaps a short note in the top section.  But there is rarely anything 
interesting in the patches directory.

Yep, thanks, I copied my text from a non-updated version of the 
dist/README.html.  I'll fix that.
