No strong counter-preference, no; decluttering the top level (in r47552)
made sense, but I don't really mind whether things are in
scripts/DISTRIBUTION/ or just in scripts/.  I agree there's a lot to be
said for being able to run it straight from a checkout, and generally I
approve of putting things in the filesystem rather than in build rules
where possible.
