We need the frontpage to inspire curiosity in first-time visitors, and 
if possible, get them hooked on Haiku. If a person starts reading the 
intro blurb (and likes it), he/she might just stay long enough to 
figure out what other link to click: screenshots, general architecture, 
team page or whatever one might want to know as a new-comer. I think it 
would be a mistake to not have any easy content on the frontpage. It's 
like free sausage snippets at the supermarket.
