and unstable, but use a different (background) color (scheme) for the
two?  [...]

Actually, it would make much more sense to split the manuals and
download page for the development version in the same way it's split for
the stable version, I think?

Yes, that's what I meant. I hesitated to propose that because it seems more invasive, and I don't have time nor texinfo (?) knowledge to take care of that myself.

Also, there is a bit of difference in content that would need some thought: most prominently, the regression tests (that are not on the user manual page for a good reason, I guess), or the contributor's guide. I understand the reason for two different layouts, to keep things as accessible as possible for the active contributors. But probably we have a significant number of users running unstable on a daily basis, but who are non-(yet-)developers and would prefer an equivalent layout.
