I think he means that the 4.0-banner isn't what he expects. I don't know 
what is better.
The banner has many uses for people that just want to download 4.0.

you do realist that's a lot of work, also on systems we have no real 
knowledge about.
But the idea would be great. However we do have more suggestions that 
can be added to ask, for example integration with OpenID and move a 
question to a bug (and visa-versa).

There is already a enhancement-request to add the URL of bugzilla to the 
BSA. I didn't come around to it but we _really_ should implement that 
soon. I'll look into it.

Some requests for better UI in BSA are dependent on that work so it 
really needs to be done. But I think we can have the quick improvement 
of at least add the link.
