[RC5] [IDEA] client questions and one-liners

With all the questions about client availability, perhaps a read-me or 
directory-info file would be in order, with single line descriptions of 
each of the clients.

For example, we're frequently getting questions about the linux mt and 
non-mt clients, because people don't realize that one is multi-threaded, 
and the other is not, or they don't know the reason for using one over 
the other (for the linux mt/non-mt issue, mt allows fetching and flushing 
while key-checking continues, but I don't know why you WOULDN'T use it...)

Just an idea, ignore it as you wish.

Also, the descriptions on the website aren't being seen by everybody, 
since not everybody uses a web browser to do FTP downloads.
