I'm not sure that that's useful.  We can (assuming there are  
statistics) easily find out what the front page *is* used for.  But  
that doesn't necessarily mean that that's what it *should* be used  
for.  In my mind, the front page is for nothing more than enticing  
people to use Haskell for long enough to look at a second page where  
all the useful stuff is if you are a haskell programmer.  It should  
include no more than a description of what haskell is, why it's cool,  
a link to the documentation, a link to a Haskell Platform Dowload and  
a link to the earlier mentioned "second page".
