Actually I thought that it cut through the problem with README.vms versus
vms/perlvms.pod quite nicely since it gets to be more explicit about what
is supposed to go in the file.  You could `mv README.vms INSTALL.vms` and
it would be just fine, whereas there'd be more of splitting into
components bit of the README.win32 file I'd think.
