hmm, isn't that just normal doc stuff ? ;-o
(perhaps under the packager/ subdir)

They're needed by mcedit at runtime, same as shared libs, configs, etc.

IMHO, "contrib" means: from external sources and not officially 
maintained by the upstream. I don't see that we really have this
situation yet (besides distro-specific buildfiles, etc).

Already suspected something like that. IMHO an stupid idea:
Embedded maintainers should use an trimmed-down slang or do
static linking, etc. BTW: the change of unnecessarily bloating
up the system w/ bundled slang is quite good - just takes one
more slang-using app and all benefit's gone.

My vote is to completely dropping the bundled slang and let the
embedded folks do the trim-down on their own.
