Heh. That's true. I take it that you're not interested in maintaining
any of the contribs? I would like to propose a process to support the
contribs without getting in your way: let's have some sort of contrib
maintainer than can test the contribs and tag the tree as FAIRLY_STABLE
(or something similar) at regular intervals.

I could think of some people better prepared for this task, but if no
one else is interested and this turns out to be a good idea, I'm
volunteering for this task.

Given a comprehensive test suite this process could be completely
automatic. (See Factor's build system for a nice example of this.)

Comments welcome.
