Mostly that its not txt. I don't know what RST is, and I frankly don't
care. For me changing this is 'make work', and I really don't need that.

Changing this away from txt will simply make want to write documentation
less, because it means having to figure out wtf RST is first, which
means I'll simply won't do it.
