Actually, what I had in mind was to replace the dynamically-generated
HISTORY and README files with small text files that contain those
URL references.  If we remove those files from the distribution
tarballs altogether, it'd likely break some packagers' recipes
(I know for sure it'd break the Red Hat RPM specs, for instance).
But packaging should still work if they're there but smaller.
