The intention behind the current README is to have it be generic
enough to fit all cases.  (Almost, there is very minor tweaking done
in the distributions.)  The previous version of this would generate a
custom readme for every distribution, which would potentially be more
effective, but in practice it wasn't well maintained and some of the
results went from odd to bad.
