We could have a two-level archive:
- contributed code, offered as-is without any verification
- tested code, which has been compiled on a variety of machines
  and comes with some documentation and test cases.

In a research environment (where many of us work) it is necessary to
share also less stable code; many highly specific modules might never
make it to an "official" level. As long as this is made clear, I see
no problem.
