Notice this is also fine, would this be what goes inthe optional task jar?
Here we should enforce some more proper guidelines, formating, copyright
notes, licencing and so on, I guess. And I have no problem with using the
current way to manage that. Notice that once we have something like I am
propossing I would assume that much of the presure on the optional tasks
will disapear.

Some way for users to comment about it would be nice.

I guess, we will not be storing the contribution ourselves, maybe at some
point we could suggest where people can store their contributing software:
the big java tree (or whatever is called) or some other site. So people can
just submit it.
