We should also, for this and for the script,
validate the md5sum.  (Simo asked me to do that ages ago, and I've not
got to it yet). 

While I don't want to discourage you, Ira's lib_3p branch, taken only to
the point of moving the code, but then additionally blacklisting it from
the tarball, seems less work in the short term, if we are OK with this
code being in git.
