Well, for me anyway (I can't address the machinations of setting this up
for actual upload), right now it's a matter of getting what we need to do
to work in the next day, hopefully. I have other commitments later in the
week, and well, I would like to get to a conclusion on this.

This will also effect the links in the new "other.html" as well.

(I think given all this I need to split "other.html" from the new
download/index.html and let someone else work on "other". I'm kind of
getting into a time crunch.)

This being said, maybe the version-centric approach Jurgen has suggested
from his most recent post and Marcus suggested (I think) makes sense...

Again, since all the scripting will be directed to SF, I just need to know
what we're doing. The change to make this happen is not horrendous,
but....things need to be tracked down in several places.
