README files invisible on

I just wanted to add a README.Xorg in when I noticed that there
are two older README.* files which do not show up in http. A new
README.Xorg didn't show up either. However adding an empty file with a
different name (I tried `touch xorgstuff`) was reflected on http.

Is there something in the httpd configuration that makes README files
invisible in directory listings? Why would anyone want to hide README
