Honestly, I think the text in the README would more accurately reflect John’s concerns about the breathless tone found in the Guide, and so I am more likely to put *that* text into the Guide, rather go the other way. 

Furthermore, in the interest of eliminating bit rot and in using the right tool for the right job, I would strip the README back drastically to cover only basic technical details on downloading, installing, and running GnuCash. Everything else should go, IMHO.
