*sigh* Yes, indeed. I'd like to keep the Debian CD/DVD image though, it's
nice! :)

If only there were a global left-hand navigation and breadcrumb trails
("Home -> foo -> bar") for easier navigation.  Displaying the standard
navigation bar ("About Debian", "News"...) on all pages is not really
appropriate for a website of this size. For the CD pages, it would be
useful if the different pages ("FAQ", "net install", "buy") were easily
accessible from other CD-related pages.

When I had created /CD/, /distrib/ and /distrib/cd were created by someone 
else to "guide" visitors around the "ugly"/"overloaded"/whatever main CD 
page. At the time, I chose not to argue because it wouldn't have helped.
So the existence of these pages is more the result of some personal 
differences, maybe the time has come to clean things up.

Clearly, there is a large overlap between /CD/ and /distrib/ - IMHO only
one of them should exist.
