Having a single download link that only points to the Haskell Platform
would be a bit of a policy shift. Is the community ready to accept that
users looking for "Haskell" should be given the HP binaries?

If so, I can change it to have a single "Download" button. Though it
might be preferable to do that after the next release (the first
non-beta release).
