So what's the use case for the RHS column?  Presumably it's to quickly
navigate to a project of interest, which is good if you know what
you're looking for.  But then, if you know what you're looking for,
you also know it's at incubator.apache.org/<whatyou'relookingfor>.

If you don't know what you're looking for, a list of names may not be
as useful as, say, the actual podlings list page which has
descriptions along with the names.

Mostly it would seem useful if you *almost* know what you're looking
for..."What was the name of that podling again...? Well, let's go to
incubator.apache.org and...Oh, of course.  Chukwa."

So which of these is best served by the presence of the column, and is
that a frequently-enough-occurring need to demand the column?
