I probably wouldn't get rid of mail/README.async, that's useful

Agreed.  I'll mention that in the bug.  There's some useful unshipped
README files in Camel too, I believe.

Matthew,

I think this is a nice move. We should get rid of all the dead files out
of the trunk. We can take this over bugzilla.
