I noticed the change to the installation procedure float by on the checkins
list but never saw anything which indicated that sb_bnfilter.py and
sb_bnserver.py were moved from contrib to scripts.

It was there, just not where setup.py was looking.  I cvs remove'd them from
contrib and cvs add'ed them to scripts, then modified setup.py to also
install sb_bnserver.py.
