I agree that it would be good to have a well-organized archive of
contributed functions.  The one that was maintained by Oscar Márquez
was a nice start, but it seems to have disappeared without a trace.

If you want it to happen, you are going to have to get together and do
it yourselves.  I might be able to host it, but I don't have time to
set up and maintain an archive myself.
