Both available CDN locations should be prominently featured with the
link to the relevant documentation (how it is different from a regular
build). People should be able to play with the build immediately without
downloads, builds, and installations/web server configurations in simple
case. Simple stuff should be ... well, simple.

| We can refine this with the release of the new site.   Unless I hear any
| objections, I'll take a stab at this tonight.
