I'm not sure I like this idea.  I have no objections to scripts that are
not distributed with KiCad to be maintained in any manner the developer
see fit.  I would prefer that any source code that gets distributed with
KiCad remain in the source repo.  I would not be opposed to removing the
footprint wizards from KiCad and make them a separate project but I'm
not sure all of our users would agree with installing them separately
since they have been part of KiCad almost as long as the python
scripting support.
