All true ... Here is my {twisted} logic :)

I wanted it at the top of the page ... not it the middle of the
directories ... so a uppercase R does that.  README.txt has special
meaning in Apache ... I don't want it to do what that does.  So
Readme.txt it is

I was going to have a docs directory, but decided to put it in one file
instead.  (I figured it would be easier if it was in the main directory
and in one file).  I am not tied to that concept, so if lots of people
think separate files are better, we can do that.
