Now there is a "Patches" section on the mc BTS, so the situation is a
lot better. Supplying patches with official source is not a good thing
- it would look like we support them, but when unmaintained they will
be useless or broken within one release. IMO BTS is a good place for
patches (we could put a link to it somewhere in documentation).
Moreover when somebody wants to publish his patch - he could do this
on his homepage. 

However 'contrib' dir would be a great thing for add-ons like
mc-burner or some special vfses.
