Stop distributing notes/

In trying to understand why the nightly tarballs[1] are so much bigger
than the ones for 1.6.x[2], I discovered it is because we've added
significant content to notes/ on trunk (specifically
notes/obliterate). Instead of trying to cherry-pick specific notes/
to include in the release tarballs, I'd like to propose that we just
drop the folder entirely from our distribution artifacts. notes/ is
something of a dumping ground, with content that is out-of-date, or
pie-in-the-sky. While useful for developers, I don't think it has
relevance to end-users, and hence the suggestion we remove it from our
source distribution.

Thoughts?
