Wouldn't it be best to keep all our code in the same place? I have no 
particular attachment to SVN as a tool (and I love the extra power of 
Git), but I am perfectly happy with SourceForge as a host for all this 
sort of stuff.

Or are we talking about putting sample code of this kind in a completely 
different place to the TEI code base?
