Sorry, but no.

- There is no "website design competition".  This means that John (like
  everyone else) is free to spend his time any way he pleases.  His
  design is actually rather lightweight and cool (apart from minor
  column size problems and font sizes), so I see no reason to avoid
  showing it around.

- It makes no sense to "keep stuff to yourself", if you're making it in
  the first place in order to give it to the FreeBSD project.

I say "John keep the good work up" and I'm sure he has already contacted
all the right people who are not working in Perforce towards the same
goal :-)
