I agree that duplication is bad, but I think README files in the
individual contrib directories is useful and worth keeping: if I'm about
to install a contrib module and want to learn how to install and use it,
this change would only make that information *more* difficult to find.

I wonder if it would be possible to keep the master version of the
contrib docs as SGML, and generate plaintext READMEs from it during the
documentation build.
