    Convert README to README.md. · 719adb4f

    Convert the contents of the top-level README to Markdown and give it a
    .md extension. Most of our documentation is plain text or AsciiDoc, but
    the top-level README file in a Git repository is special in that many
    online browsers will show the README contents along with the directory
    listing and those browsers tend to favor Markdown. This is true of
    GitHub (which we're currently mirroring to), Gerrit via its Gitiles
    plugin (which we're not yet using but likely will), and other places.
    Add "foreign" to AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE. There is probably a joke to be
    made here about the FSF and border walls.
