I *do* agree with adding these useful modules to contrib. I've often
found myself in the position of having somethign useful but not
something i wish to maintain. The problem remaining in my opinion is

The cvs folder names are a bit ambigious to say the least. The project
nodes really help outline the functionality and differentiation from the
other modules. Would it be possible to make some sort of development
only project node? In my eyes this is a project node with only the
"HEAD" branch and maybe these could be filtered from the project list on
d.o unless specifically  unfiltered. That way we can discourage or
prevent normal passer by users form discovering the modules and
installing them while still providing some information and context for
interested developers looking to extend or maybe even adopt said module
to provide proper support.
