Sorry, seems like I was not clear enough in my wording. It was not my
intention that we officially include() anything from contrib/ diectly
on n.v.m. It was my intention that one _LOCALLY_ can just activate
additional functionality by adding a few include() lines. Just locally,
before building the own "mtn" binary.
