Edit them how?

Getting rid of line breaks, so a paragraph is on one line, might fix the
wrapping issue on the website, but the README isn't exclusively used by
the site (if it were, we could just decree that it has to be written in
HTML instead of plain text). Extra-long lines would probably cause problems
with tools like sbopkg and sbotools.

It would also at least be annoying for anyone running SlackBuilds
manually: I usually use "cat README", and it comes out nicely
word-wrapped, with whatever list/etc formatting the author used looking
like it's supposed to look.
