Right, that's the reason why we don't install that README atm, as it
would be confusing. Enabling persistent logging and no longer installing
rsyslog by default should go hand in hand, as I don't think we really
want to log everything twice to disk. Once and if that happens,
installing the README would make sense as wel I guess.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
