Traditionally, README, COPYING, LICENSE, ... are in the project's
root. Technically there is no difference excepting when you run reap
and it has to look up for the Reapfile. Putting it in a sub-dir makes
an unnecessary dir search.

I think that README and other data text files should be placed where
the author prefers them with a default to the root dir.
