Well, the main reason for having "contrib" below "portable" would be
laziness: Hooking in a few new directories into the current build system
is a matter of seconds, while having a new "contrib" toplevel
directories means having a new configure.ac, Makefile.am etc. etc. But
the longer I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it might be
better to do the latter... :-P *sigh*
At least there seems to be no resistance against restructuring "demos",
and I think we can live with losing the history while doing that
