Posting the stuff does not make you able to click on it. Posting creates
work every week (for you). Posting stuff stop other people from developing
and fine tune the scripts. Posting spams the mailing list for those
uninterested. And worst: Other people will not be able to run this scripts
on their own server.

I don't say the scripts should be executed on every click on them. The
results can be cached. And of course, the scripts should *not* run on the
main server!

Ciao, Imi.
