Wider audience might be good. I've not yet decided whether I think this
is a good idea or not. We certainly don't need those files for stuff
that's in the RST doctree, that's what the index.rst files are for. But I
suspect some people might complain about losing them for the rest of the
content. I do get patches from people updating them, so some folks do
indeed look at them...
