Ok, didn't find the time that evening. But now i made dummy showing my 
idea for the download page. It's not a big change, but i think it is a 
bit easier to understand.

I added a new section "Download Current Version" below the "About" 
section. The idea behind this is that most people will be interested 
only in one or two versions. In the dummy only one link to the current 
JDBC 3 version is included, the download statistics should show which 
other versions are popular enough to be included here.

This is also a convenient place to link to the extras page, with a short 
description of what else is available. This way, the extras will be more 
prominently displayed, and more people will find them.

Below that comes the section "Other Versions", which mostly consists of 
the former text. This is below the current version download, because it 
is not particulary interesting if you just want to get one of the 
popular current drivers.

The table at the end is the same as before. Could be split up in 
"Development Versions", "Archived Versions" and "Source Downloads" 
tables if it gets too crowded, but it's ok for now.

That's it. Nothing big, but maybe easier for the "average first time 
downloaders" and those who just want to update their driver to the 
current version.

Is that ok for you? Any ideas? Lots of spleing errors? Forrest document 
follows if you like it and there are no more changes.
