My opinion is to follow Kamailio where we have docbook XML docs in the code
and import them to the wiki. That way, there's alway a textbased README in the source code,
as well as the XML.

I don't like the docs to be in one central position, in a not very open format, in one single language and under a license that is a bit too restrictive for our community.
