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.
