picky, picky.

The uppercase is somewhat of a standard for non-code stuff.  Travis O. used
it for LICENSE, etc.  LAPACK and ATLAS both uses it for README, INSTALL,
etc.  The txt on the end is to be nice to windows users.  The OS
automatically recognizes that extension and uses the appropriate app to open
the file.
