That's good - so the wiki needs updating:

Ah. I see now it just isn't doing what I expected - apologies for
any misdirection.

I had assumed if a README file was present, it would be shown
prominent while browsing on the ToolShed. On closer examination
of an example repository where there is a file named exactly
'README' (e.g. fubar's clustalw tool) that isn't shown either.

Is there any reason not to show the contents of the README file
(using the discussed name variations) on the main ToolShed
repository view, e.g. under a new yellow section header?



P.S. It would be nice to automatically line wrap the "Detailed
description", as in many cases the raw text doesn't do this.
For example, fubar's clustalw tool.
