I don't find it too flashy. The one thing I would change, is to put the "menu 
box" on the right on the left side instead. I think that would work better 
for people people who haven't got that high resolution. Then they won't have 
to scroll to see the main information.

Otherwise, I have only small, cosmetic things to "complain" about:

My biggest gripe is that the boxes for examples/warnings/etc always ought to 
be the same width (preferably they should use the same width as the 
"ordinary" text.)

I think the header part could be smaller on sub pages. Why waste valuable 
screen space on something that you know anyhow :-)

The "Maintained by..." footer should be aligned with the main information text 
box. If one doesn't move the menu box, then the maintain message ought to be 
right aligned.

I've tried it in Konqeuror, Links, Lynx, and Galeon. It seems to work in them

I'd say; go for it now. Or at least very soon. You might want to take a week 
or two to gather input, before applying it for real.
