... but that was *not* what was suggested.

The suggestion was to have a single Download button, leading to a  
*page* of suitably described links, allowing the user to choose  
whether they only wanted the basics (a choice of compiler/interpreter  
+ cabal), or the whole Platform, or something else.  It would be the  
ideal place to explain what cabal is and how to use hackage to get  
more libraries than are contained in the platform.  It would perhaps  
reduce the clutter on the front page that some people complained of  
(although I don't personally think it cluttered).
