In short:  duh, you're right.  It's stated pretty explicitly in there.  And it 
even tells how to name the AIs, instead of using "set aifill=x".

However, for all my page-sorting, I never read that part of README.  Perhaps a 
pointer should be made from the HOWTOPLAY document to the README file?

        First, follow the instructions in the README file to compile and
        freeciv and learn to start a game.

        Then, after you've gotten it running, you'll want to play your first
        few games.  It is recommended...

Am I the only moron, though, who didn't get it?  It's not worth changing if so.

Overall, this is a great game, even aside from the pricetag.  Don't take my 
whining too seriously!
