Just the tabbed and menu navigation.  And some other little bits that no one
probably uses.

Fixed the next time that David regenerates the site.

Since Nicola Ken first set it up here.  And that was way early for the
product, which was nowhere near mature, nor was the usage pattern.

It is comments like that which want me to give it a chance to correct its

Forrest's use here was probably premature, except that it was put into place
by one of its committers.  So there have been issues, certainly.  But David
has tried to put things right, and now we have other Forrest folks here,
since they can't get us onto their lists.  ;-)  And when David tried to
proactively talk about simplifying things, he got essentially NO feedback.
Feedback came later in the form of complaints.  And still, the Forrest folks
appear to be not only doing damage control, but working with Leo to provide
a nicer, simpler, cleaner workflow.  So if they believe that they can make
things simpler, why not?
