No, I think we should still offer them (unless/until they're
unmaintained). In a sense, "contrib/" is our non-endorsed area, in
the sense that the Subversion project doesn't take any responsibility
for maintaining those utilities.

But if we want to make detailed recommendations, we should just do so
in a README file or something, rather than having our recommendation
affect the availability of a given tool at a stable URL.

+1 on the hook templates referring by name to the tools most likely to
solve the user's problem, of course.
