It won't make any difference.  It should be as obvious as possible what
its purpose is without that.  Its affordance says "bo updates" in a
far louder voice than the readme says "bo untested".

affordance: the perceived properties of the thing, primarily those
fundamental properties that determine just how the thing could possibly
be used.  (from "About Face" by Alan Cooper and "The Psychology of Everyday
Things" by Donald Norman)
