I am in favor of removing the readme files from the cvs but make sure they are
generated and put in the package zip file.

is just a help file so when you run make manifest
(that helps you generate the manifest file) it will know what files to skip.
this can be removed if you don't run make mainfest any more (which
is reasonable if you are maintaining the manifest file manually)

I agree that this is a problem but the solution - if there is one - should not
be removing our control file.

Hmm, I don't know about that but I think that should not be in the cvs either.
