I think the same policies should apply that I want to see followed for 
any other inclusion into the stdlib: we shouldn't "adopt" any code that
is not explicitly contributed, by it's author.

That's not only the legal issues, but also the responsibility for the
code. Otherwise, we end up with code that still nobody owns, and the
out-of-core version still gets better support.
