Well, for text files (including subdirectory's 00-INDEX files) we
could have a convention which is the first line of the file should be
a (max 60 characters) one-line summary of the file.

We would probably have to do something special with non-free-form-text
files, including structured text files like Docbook files. So it's
not quite so straightforward, but it should be doable.
