Hi Jim,

Good point. It was more of a problem with 'cvs' than with 'git'. But I
like this effort anyway.

These files are pulled into gnulib via config/srclist.txt. Modifying them
in gnulib will not have a lasting effect.

This file is also, more or less, copied from upstream (unicode.org).

These files are generated through doc/Makefile. Also, on text files
that consist of multiple paragraphs, I find it good (esthetic) to have
a blank line at the end. It helps when you do "cat INSTALL" or
"more INSTALL" (especially with the BSD 'more' program that terminates
when it has printed the last line).
