Hey Tom,

Thinking about this item some more, I thought I'd talk a bit about what 
we're trying to accomplish.

My intent with this layout round was not to create a layout for just the 
Zope Foundation site, but for it to work for the Zope site as a whole 
(eventually; we'll take this step by step, where the ZF site is the 
first step). Some room for content boxes would therefore be nice, though 
I expect it wouldn't be used on every page.

I don't know whether that will change anything in your thinking about 
the layout, I just wanted to be clear that we're not just working on the 
Zope Foundation site here - that's just the first stage.

An alternative would be to have separate designs for Foundation and the 
rest of the site. Anyone have opinions on whether this is a good or bad
