I don't see that half a dozen trivial (pointless) modules should be 
classified as spam.

Personally, I've looked at the modules, and if I were the author, I'd be 
embarrassed to make them public. They aren't useful; they are rather 
immature; they don't demonstrate good Python knowledge or programming
