Each block is more or a less a separate (sub) project. So there
definitly needs to be a community around it before it should end
up in our CVS. We failed at this point in the past. Take a
look at some blocks we have, there are quiet a lot that don't
have a community. So we should start considering this point
with new contributions and I think Bertrands proposal is simple
but good enough.
