New submission from STINNER Victor:

Copy of
The Windows installer build picks up this readme file and distributes it as 
readme.txt (see Tools/msi/exe/exe_files.wxs, which now needs fixing).

I vote we should keep both so that we can distribute the file without rst 

(As an aside, we also read the /LICENSE file, so if someone wants to come in 
and "fix" that too then they'll also need to update the installer.)

README.txt was renamed to README.rst by the PR#2:

But README.rst was then modified by PR #70, PR #73 and #21.
