Sure, I don't care much where.  My desire is that they be really
checked out (not deleted-but-still-in-the-repository).  They also are
normally *not* distributed in the source tarball (and should therefore
not live in such places).

That is, they are the developer's private notes, but are still
important as such.  The official source tarball (which releases we
*do* want to make, even if it's not the priority now) would not have
these, nor should the corresponding Debian .orig.tgz file.
