Ah, I understand.  Yes, it *is* a good idea.  

I don't know whether we're the only ones, but tex-common has a
"README.Debian.$ext" in txt, pdf and html/* format (prepared with
debiandoc-sgml), which replaces README.Debian.  How would your script
interact with that situation?

[Actually it's called "TeX-on-Debian.*", the naming has historical
reasons, and I'd rather not rename it, but we could easily add a symlink
from README.Debian to it.  The general point is still: README.Debian in
different formats]
