I think this would be wisest; since there will likely be a bit of API
churn with 0.7 that would break many scripts, and putting them in CVS
(even in a contrib directory) suggests that there is some
maintenance/support expectation.  If we get a good enough collection,
maybe we can put them into the stable branch in the near future.
