The readme info is generated from the supplied README for the
slackbuild by reading it in php, formatting it, and then printing
between <pre> tags.

I've had a look to see if/how the wrapping amount could be changed to
help fill out the page width, but I'm afraid it's not really possible
to tell if two adjacent lines should be wrapped together, or whether
the next line should be on a newline, such as in a list for example.
