I adapted this suggestion a bit -- it's now live on docs.scipy.org. The 
"See also" part lives in the side bar, but otherwise it's almost as 
above. The download links look definitely better on the front page.

There's also an attempt to link the site visually to the parent scipy.org 
site, but I'm no web designer, and it seems there are now too many snakes 
on the page.
