Bug#612118: www.debian.org: /distrib/ should link to multi-arch image rather than separate 32-bit and 64-bit images

I guess I see the rationale for that.  I do, however, think that the
download link on the front page seems fairly easy to miss if you don't
know to look for it, in favor of the "Getting Debian" link in the page
text.  The download link seems to disappear into the header, perhaps
because when you've seen a logo/project banners on many sites you tend
to naturally look past them to find content, and don't expect to find
content *in* them. :)

In any case, it does seem odd to have the "Getting Debian" page not
provide the same link as the front page. How about in addition to the
single-arch links, rather than replacing them?
