This would be improved if we applied the gradient-backgrounds to
the second-layer menu.

Would you rather have it centered?  I'm not against such a change.

Done; I changed it to "LilyPond... music notation for everyone".

Are you referring to the home page, Introduction->(main),
Introducton->Features, or Introduction->Freedom?

I think that Intro->Freedom is fine -- that's the main reason I
started using lilypond.  Besides, if that doesn't appeal to
people, they can easily skip to the main page.

I'm definitely willing to reduce the proganda on other pages.

Hmm.  We need to include the FDL directly for the pdf+info
manuals.  IMO, if we include it for those outputs, we might as
well include it for HTML as well.  And if we're doing the FDL, we
might as well include the GPL.

I don't think it gets in the way -- again, if somebody clicks on
that menu item by accident, they can easily click somewhere else.
