Indeed.  :-)

IWBN if these instructions were in README-hacking or some such.
Or at least a pointer to where to find them.
There is README-release but it's generated at "make dist" time
(presumably for good reasons, but there's good stuff in there
that would be nice to be able to easily find after a git clone
and before anything else).
