On the other side nearly every programmer has written some tools for
his own use, to learn something new, just for fun or to fix some
problems with widely available tools. Often only the creator and some
friends use it.

Do you really think we should put extfs for JSR ('John Smith's
Archiver'), JSOPL ('John Smith's Own Programming Language') syntax
file, vfs for 'John Smith's Personal Filesystem' (JSPF), etc. into
official mc archive??? 

There must be some selection - and it would fit well into 'contrib'
cvs directory. Arpi, this mail is not to offend you, I also have some
toys created by me I enjoy. I just think there is no point including
things in mc that 99,9% users wouldn't use.


ps. When 'contrib' will be created, could sb move 'hp48' and 'bpp'
extfses there? Its an example of (nearly) useless extfs.
