I disagree with reason 1, wrt reason 2,3: it's common behaviour on FreeBSD
lists to use Reply-All (i.e., CC the poster) exactly because the lists are
open to outside postings.

I'd still like those READMEs to be disabled completely. They interfere with
cvsup in a most annoying way and thus generate FAQs (why do I have empty
directories with a README in it? Why are there ports twice in the tree but
one of them doesn't work?).
