Daniel and i talked about this further, and we didn't see any particular
utility to any of the Introduction links outside of historical curiosity. All
of them are broken and/or 20+ years old. We thought we may as well just get
rid of them entirely.

This change removes the Introduction link from the front page, and, just in
case someone gets to it from Google or whatever, replaces the Introduction
index by a redirect to the manual.

Please let me know if anyone's actually invested in keeping the old links.
