Maybe, but I think I agree with Daniel that 'contrib/' is
probably not the right place for it if it's something that
we care about supporting. 'contrib' to me is "bucket of stuff
that we didn't really feel strongly we wanted to reject but
which is probably random special-cases or other obscure
stuff, don't bother looking in here and don't assume it's
going to work either".
