Richard, do think such as system would be viable copyright-wise?
Of course, we would only do this when the author assigns copyright, but there's a very real possibility that a careless maintainer might add someone else's code to this page. And then this (non-copyright-assigned) code would be automatically pulled and committed to Elpa.

I ask this because if we are OK with this risk then I'm perfectly willing to write such a script (eager, even).
