I was under the impression that the two were separate and we were
trying to decide on a design for the foundation first, because that
site should be up ASAP. I fear if we try to come up with a design for
both we'll end up in analysis paralysis again.
+1 for a separate foundation site design in the interest of getting
the site *done*. Whether that same design ends up on zope.org as a
whole is a decision we could take later.
