As zwark pointed out (on the collector), the navigation box is one of
the most configurable and flexible tools in Plone. We can make some
experiments with it and if no-one is happy it can go away. I would
like to hear other suggestions about how to do navigation on new Zope.org,
as the current navigation on http://www.zope.org is not what we call amazing
