Hi devs,

sorry for the uninformed question, but I don't seem to be able to find
an answer in the CG or in the source directory.

If I have a new Scheme engraver that I'd like to suggest to be added,
where would I look for a place to add it to?
Is there a file (or a set of files grouped by topic) where I should
insert it or can I add a dedicated file (in which folder)?

There is no really good place and part of the reason is that Scheme
engravers are second class citizens not traced in the Internals Guide.
Scheme engravers would need to get additional information, like the
_name_ of the engraver and its read, written and modified properties in
order to have that.

Apart from this basic shortcoming, I'd usually expect each of them (or
each group of them serving one particular purpose) to sit in a file of
their own.

OK. I think I'll give it a try and prepare a patch and we'll see what you think then ...
