I am concerned about this (and followup) commits.

For the last several years, my understanding is that contrib/ has been
deprecated. We don't ship it with the release tarballs. We've even
been asking folks to move stuff out, where possible. The Subversion
project should not be a "hoster of {last,first} resort" when it comes
to Subversion-related code.

While I don't doubt the utility or quality of this code, contrib/ is
not the place for it to live.
