i've added Index... now and also related online links. i got rid of
the development menu though, because even though we have a bunch of development
documents at this point, i figured keeping the Index uptodate and
referring to the development section of the Index would be a better idea.

this is meant to be the development section in Index now.

we have a 3rd party TODO in the wiki already, so the devel section
now simply links to that. the one document that's essentially lacking
at this point is "Overview". i'll make that "Architecture Overview"
and add it to the TODO list.
