I'm still a little concerned users will get the wrong impression
when told "Thanks for the contrib, but go find somewhere else to put it."
(I know I would have lost interest in helping...)

Therefore, I suggest creating a "Contrib manager" role that coordinates
collecting these types of contributions into a common location (probably
just another tigris project. e.g. svn-contrib)

Thoughts? Concerns? Volunteers?

I realize I could just do it, but I'd rather have some coordination
with the project... (If no one else volunteers, I could probably
be persuaded to help setup some stuff, but my time has been quite
limited lately.)
