So I said "why not put it in contrib" and you said "because then it
can't be used by the installer".  Now you are saying that even if this
wasn't a problem, it still shouldn't be in contrib.

Why?  I'm flabbergasted that it matters at all.  What does it matter?
If it were put in contrib (by accident, say), how would this cause a
problem, assuming that the installer problem was fixed?  What specific
problems are you concerned about?
