ISTM that devlopers are correctly concerned about policy. And ISTM that users place a slightly higher premium on administrative ease than they do on consistency. Nothing really wrong with that either.

My guess is that users would be very happy to yield on placing the script in /contrib if some alternate were proposed. I'd be just as happy if there were a link to the file on the download page. Or if it was placed in an "interim" directory or something like that. I just want it to be available. I would prefer if it could be done in a way that's consistent with the project policy, but that consistency is just slightly less important to me than short-term usability.
