I think the important thing here would be to not lose too much time in
discussion, and just get a first version done, and then we can go on
from that.

Using Bootstrap is likely a good starting point. If some room is
reserved for navigation tools between scipy-central.org, scipy.org,
numpy.org, and docs.scipy.org, and whatnot, that will probably be enough.

On the technical side, Sphinx themes are not too difficult to do, in
general it's possible to do anything.
