Yup, that's exactly the kind of thing I mean.

Not sure I'd do that.  Read and heed the first few lines in
contrib/README.  contrib/ is essentially unmaintained, except by the
contributors themselves.  However, if we decide that some of the
commands are worthy enough to become part of the official package,
nothing stops us from moving them elsewhere (say, a lua-commands/ that
isn't under contrib/?) and have them actively maintained.

I'd say that there's nothing to stop you ;-)
