	If you don't include a comprehensive README with your files
newbies aren't going to download it then pester you with whiney email
asking how to add files to a makefile so they get compiled, and varoius
other shit that fills up your mail box.  (in case you can't tell, I think
its a good idea for people to read code to find out what it does.)
