 Ok after giving it a lot of research on getting to read something under
 the plugins folder without making it work I decided to propose the way I'd
 do it without an actual 'url rewrite'.

 This way in '''3123.4.diff'''  we achieve all of the above as well.

 1) We include it on the version control.
 2) It adds a custom template to `/plugins/readme.txt` to show readme.txt's

 I know that this goes off from what @SergeyBiryukov suggested on getting
 it into the plugin, but it does the job or at least it's a start I think
 with everything needed here.

 What I simply did is added a `plugin-readme-txt.php` file within the
 `wporg-plugins` template and created a custom function to show that file
 when someone goes to `/plugins/readme.txt`. It's a basic html template
 nothing more to it.
