More bits about downloads:
There is a link 'Libraries' on the main page. Not all stuff in RAA and
on RubyForge can be intuitevely seen as a library. When there was a
RAA link on the old page it was obvious. An application archive. But
now if I was searching for a framework or a finished program (as
opposed to a library) I would not know where to look.
Second, the link to the page that is now labeled "libraries" should be
also from the download page.
