My question here is seeking a technical answer.  I didn't come for a 
design interview.

FWIW, the new site is a consolidation of two existing sites that are 
similar but have evolved differently over the past 7 years.  The 
consolidation brings them together under a new user interface, removes a 
good bit of redundancy, and cleans up a goodly number of accummulated 
minor content related inconsistencies.
