I kinda like the polish on zope.org as it is now. There are
minimal images getting in the way of the information content and
the colors convey a good emotional tone. 'Polish' for 'polishes'
sake alone is wasted resources, imo. And 'improvements' for the
sake of 'polish' often degrade usability of sites for many users
unnecessarily. Better the time be invested making the site more
'informational' as that is what creates and maintains the 'image'
that truly matters in the long run.
I fully expect dissention on this view. To better understand my
personal point of reference it may help to know that I have
switched my primary browser from gui to text to avoid 'polish'
and improve access to information that for most open source
projects is almost entirely textual in content... <g>
And, oh yeah try running the zmi via lynx sometime! It works
