Yes, I've already added this to the related links page along with 
links to all the language bindings. I'll also link the 'CIM provider' 
in the front page bullet list.

I changed the default site style, but if you're logged into the admin 
account you might need to change your account preferences to use the
new skin - 


Select the 'Libvirt' skin.

Not sure what you mean about the API pages ? They're using the same style
as the rest of the site. The only other style change there was that the
table of contents puts everything within one <pre> intead of multiple
to get rid of the repeated boxes in the TOC of the current page.

The fonts display the same size as the current site when I compare them.
Or do you want them bigger than the current site ?

The API pages are still using the same URLs as before. If we were to split
it out into groups by  virConnect/Domain/Network/Storage, then I'd suggest
still keeping the same existing URLs for compatability, and use that page
to link to the group pages. So if someone stored the URL they'd still get
a valid page, and no 404's
