Please.  It takes 5-10 minutes to setup a GitHub or Google Code account, 
it's a fully legitimate skill most developers already have today (and if 
they don't, they certainly aren't the worse off for learning) and a 
large chunk of developers (especially including those with "dozens of 
plugins"), already have one.  We don't want to be managing any junky or 
ignored plugins either--if it's no good, we can just remove the 
reference to them from our plugins page.  I already have one for both: and ; 
they're nothing to create today.
