ModelForm documentation too well hidden?

Description

It seems to me that the link to the ModelForm documatation (http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/modelforms/) is somewhat hidden, in that as far as I could see, it only appears at around the 3/4 mark of the form documentation, far enough down that even to see the entry in the TOC, most people will have had to page down once or twice! I'd suggest that it either needs to be linked from the top Documentation page or failing that, move its line/link on the Forms documentation up to the top of that document.

I agree your request was valid considering the old documentation. However, as I see it now after doc-refactor, ModelForm is referenced at least twice -- in the "Form objects" and the "Further topics" sections -- which is not bad for just an introduction to forms.
http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/forms/

If you think ModelForm is still too hidden and want to reopen this ticket, please also provide a patch. That would make it much easier to review the pertinence of the proposal.
