The tabs across the top aren't part of the site--I was just too lazy to trim the
edges of the screenshot.  They're part of the Firefox chrome, although the
ColorfulTabs plugin probably makes that less than clear if you've never seen 
it in action before.  All of the site navigation is in the sidebar on the left below 
the Trinity logo, in ordinary links.  And the code mostly maxes out at 5 nested
divs. ;)

I have no idea when the actual deployment will take place.  I still have to
produce matching skins for Bugzilla and the wiki (I may need to get in touch 
with you off-list about the new wiki at some point).  Darrell is the one doing
most of the content retouch, and he's a very busy guy right now.
