I'd say the bare-bones style of it is probably jarring to most users
today. I had to check if the site even had any CSS at all.
I.e. I think a more intuitive UI to users today would probably be some
collapsible side-bar on the left of the screen, which would have a
threaded view. The "Archives are clonable" would probably belong in some
"help" tab in such a UI.
