Maybe we need a directory for contributed changes that don't integrate
well into the main codebase.

That's the reason why it's unsafe to add such things to the default menu.

Wrong.  It wasn't a patch.  It was a tarball with modified sources.

I really don't like your approach to making releases by creating a tarball
and excluding CVS files.  You are promoting a bad practice.  The releases
of GNU software are done by running "make distcheck".
