It is probably fine to stare at them here and the end result is good
for showing them in browsers but after this conversion, it is
getting more and more painful to work with those files. For example,
Documentation/x86/x86_64/mm.txt we use a lot. I'd hate it if I had to go
sort out rest muck first just so that I can read it.

I think we can simply leave some text files be text files and be done
with it.
