Looks like the trouble right now is that this is the first instance (that
I know of, others can feel free to jump in) in which we have a package in
any Extras repo that wasn't built out of Extras CVS, and so we don't have
a policy for it.

So, what do we do?

  a. Build it in beehive and just drop it somewhere?

  b. Duplicate the sources in Extras CVS and use the build mechanisms
     we currently have in place?

And the answer is... I don't know.  I suppose we need a policy for this 
kind of case.
