Sure I do, I have absolutely no problem with this situation.

But my former suggestion to let these scripts locally executable in
checked out copy will resurface sooner or later ;)
Some operations performed by these scripts must be done on our *local*

Another solution would be to add nice READMEs, but I prefer the former.
