Hmmm, OK. Based on a previous remark, I however changed the two references
to this file into README.Debian.gz (one was README.Debian, another was
README.Debian.html). I actually assumed that README.Debian.html was a
mistkae, which it is obviously not.

This can be changed back, if you prefer. Translations *can* be
unfuzzied for this.

Yes, that could be an interesting change.

I'm not sure actually, maybe Jens (who, IIRC, has very good English
skills) has suggestions.
