The .txt is there to point out its plaintext format (as opposed to the
HTML). The HTML version exists as an alternative cross-platform readable
version with proper highlighting properties, since the plaintext version
is ... well, *very* plain. Read them and you'll understand the
: in /usr/src and the stuff used to generate it, and other versions (html

: need to modify it, but out of the way.
Now that idea's usable; I could find another path for it. I'll ponder it.
I'm not particularly keen on putting it somewhere that would imply that it
gets installed in /usr/share, as the document is very much tied to the
source tree (and not the target binary system).
