"Graceful" SD is down page

    A client from issue 21771133 feels that it would be nice if SD had a page that would render, reporting it was unavailable, whenever they perform maintenance.  At present, users would be informed their browser could not display the web page, but that is default web browser behaviour.  What is being sought is for the SD to display a "we're sorry, but SD is not available" message, when SD is taken down for maintenance.

    The client understands the notion that they can always use a redirect, but want SD to do this automatically.
