[Haskell-cafe] Leaner Haskell.org frontpage

I think it would be best if the page were  targeted towards newcomers, and
not as a jump point for resources.
Such a jump page is useful, but not as a homepage. Perhaps
haskell.org/linkswould be a better place for such a thing.

As an aside, in the current homepage, the Haskell description is outweighed
by the link menu on the left. IMO the reader's eyes should move from the
title, to the description, then either down or left.  Currently my attention
is split evenly between the link menu and the title/description, which
results in confusion.
