Most certainly. However, before I add the code to PyPI, I'd review it, 
anyway, so no worries.

Just be prepared to provide the code as separately-reviewable chunks
of modifications.

Alternatively, you could start submitting patches.

I'm not quite sure why that would be. You still couldn't write to the 
repository, could you? So what would be the difference?
