Usecases.. checking for releases, both new and, sometimes historic research,
old ones.

A fileindex has a "tabular" appearance where each "row" contains filename and
date, and that table be sorted primarily by filename with no extra grouping, so
that wayland-* and weston-* releases are not interspersed.

The release page is the antithesis to that: it presents items like a
blog rather than a filelisting, grouped by date with a static
reverse-date ordering, and grouping different filenames by date as
well. Imagine if `ls -l` did that all the time.
