This allows a slightly nicer formatting of the text when displayed on
some repository hosts. We keep a symlink from README for the
old-school purists.

Please use 'format-patch -M' to create patches when renaming files.
I'm not sure I care about having a .md version or not, but only
one README* file in the root dir would be my preference, i.e. if we
want a .md version, then let's just have that, i.e no symlink.

Thanks,
drew
