I wouldn't go quite that far - while those directories aren't controlled
in the same way as the interpreter and the standard library, there's
still the fact that this is code that the PSF will end up redistributing.

That means the basic rules for any checkin still apply:
- PSF must have the necessary legal rights to redistribute the code
(usually via a Contributor Agreement)
- code should be of good quality

At least checking for objections on python-dev first is probably a good
idea as well (in this case, I think both ccbench and iobench make good
