Why do you need to make substitutions in the README file? Usually this

As we know, autoconf/automake has confisticated our package version numbers (without hearing, trial, or public testimony) for these many years. There is a proposal on the table to liberate our version numbers so that our software can be free. In the mean time it is reasonable to try to specify the original package version number in as few places as possible.
