README: Use `X' and `x' consistently
The text referred to `XX', when only a single `X' actually existed, so this commit changes it to just `X'; a similar change has been made for `xx'. Also, `N' was used when it would have been more consistent to use `X' again, so this commit replaces `N' with `X'. This commit also chooses to leave `X' as the placeholder for the current version of the source, and then makes `x' the placeholder for any version number; fortunately nothing really depends on this subtlety being understood. Because `x' is already being used when discussing version numbers, this commit changes such filename references as `xxx.rej' to `some-file-name.rej'.
