This is really a bad location in terms of visibility.  How do I know?
 Because Google Analytics tracks screen resolution for incoming
requests (it is part of standard HTTP request header metadata).  It
then has a report where it will show you how much of any given page
can be seen by what % of your users without scrolling.  For the home
page, fewer than 10% of the users can see that footer without
scrolling.   Since every normal action on the page is above that mark,
users have no reason to scroll down to see this link.

In any case we can look at this again after graduation.
