Both the index.html and the rest of the HTML docs ( a single file )
exist a the top-level directory of the lib, so I am going to assume that
putting a readme file in the doc sub-directory will be fine. I don't
really want to move around either of the html files unless it is
required in some way. The lib is a CMT lib and I don't want to change it
more than I have to.
