Go for it.  I don't have time for that today.

Apache is very source-code oriented since it is about Open Source.  In
fact, to Apache, the binaries are not official releases, just convenience
artifacts.  So websites, readme's and lots of other things are supposed to
be about working from the source code.

We could put a different README in the binary artifacts.  I just don't
know how many people will read it instead of the "Get Started" we put on
the docs page soon.
