i have no intention of doing that.  the copy that's used has other uses
too, which would be prevented by mucking about with any files.

the file names are also html entity names (no particular reason -- they
just are), and may not therefore start with a digit.  12many is
catalogued as one2many.

however, whether or not there's an authors file on the repository copy
that rsync presents, jim's files are generated from his own copy, as are
mine.  i actually have 4 copies (two inside our firewall, the one you
see via rsync, and one here at home).  they present an identical set of
files, on their own file system.
