I have another case.
I'm maintaining a copy of the bidi.module in my sandbox

Why isn't it a drupal project ? For 2 reasons:
* The code is ugly and I don't have enough time to clean it and fix the coding style.
* I'm not interested in maintaining an _official_ drupal module. I just keep it
in my sqndbox and fix whatever whenever I find enough time.

I always ask people to get it from my sandbox and to monitor it for changes.

I'm sure we can find more use cases if we investigate farther (Although I understand
that people keep -what we consider in our opinion to be- crap)

All the best,
