Splashpages are a crime against nature.  I'll leave the colors to
someone who can see them :-)

Didn't you say that the current site is maintained with CVS?  Just
make a subdirectory /new and put the new site into that.  Work from
there.

All static right now.  If there's a system (e.g., Mason) being used
where it's hosted, someone else should componentize it.

I agree the order should be:
 * componentize
 * colorize
 * contentize

(You can tell I'm getting comfortable with management by the way I
hold down the English language and give it some good hard back door
action with all the "-ize"s)

I've heard nothing back except from you and Ken.  If nobody offers to
tone down the colour, it's going to stay bright and gaudy.
