[tex-live] shade.sty is malformed

In all of TeX Live from 2005 to 2009 (and perhaps earlier) the file:
is actually the concatenation of four files that should be
separate. As it exists, this file is unusable.

Those sepatate files actually exist on CTAN in macros/generic/shade.
They are:
    README, description.tex, shade.tex and shade.mf
In this form, the package is usable, but these separated files are
not present in TeX Live.

Another genmisc file: backgrnd.tex is at least partly dependent
on shade.tex; however, it is usable without it.

Since this seems not to have been noticed for several years,
I expect a correction is not critical ;-)
