Dear Jan;

Without looking too much at the details I think this is reasonable to
include in contrib, as a set of examples if nothing else. Still, I'm
curious about a few things. Are there actual users (other than the
author)?  What would we do about bug reports? Will you follow the list,
or would we explicitely tell people to contact you directly?

I guess some of the python experts might want to discuss the coding
style of pylint goes ballistic, for whatever that is

For the shell stuff, I noticed lots of unquoted parameter expansion;
also at some point you make a temporary directory using $$
directly rather than using e.g. mktemp.

What did you have in mind for a license? since there is no linking here,
it does not have to be GPL3+, but some standard Free license is needed I
think; since I'm also maintaining the Debian package, I don't want to
have to remove your stuff before uploading to Debian.
