Well, it was semi-incomplete, hence I didn't hook it into the rest. I
hadn't gotten a huge amount of feedback, but I felt it was better to get
it in, than to leave it out.

I don't know of a good reference for conversion of history, yet. Hence
why that link isn't resolved.

This is the best one I could find:

Though I wrote that one as well, and it isn't super perfect either.

I don't think back-porting fixes to make it visible is really worth a
new release candidate.

I would probably have README.1st reference index.txt. I'm tempted to
just remove it. Or maybe change it to README.txt, and then have it have
*identical* contents to index.txt.

Or could we have 'make docs' know to change README => index.htm?

index.html is good for web browsing (though it doesn't make any
difference on the local filesystem), but people reading text
documentation aren't going to know to look there. And having a stub file
 telling you to look at another file is a little ugly.

I would also get rid of all of the disclaimers about being out of date.
These docs are *meant* to be the version specific documentation.


README.1st should be cleaned up. At this point I'm okay with just
removing almost everything and telling them to switch to index.txt.
