Let's discuss .org documentation at DebConf.  I've converted the
README to plaintext for now.

In the same way that lines must be hard-wrapped to fit a 80 column
terminal I inferred that long description should also fit in a 24 line
terminal, and that README should used for anything longer.  Maybe it's
not a hard rule, but this has always struck me as a sort of standard.
At any rate, I've updated the description.

I think this is probably the simplest rich-minority-mode equivalent,
assuming that subsequent (diminish 'minor-mode-function) adds items

(push " Fill" rm-blacklist)

I haven't investigated corner cases, but it would seem that
rich-minority-mode might also be simple :-)

All of your comments should be addressed by 419b8ca which I believe is
ready to upload.  I would be very appreciative if you would also grand
DM permissions for it :-)

Thank you,
