I'd make the rule that script files should either be changed to
<filename.ext>.txt and uploaded that way or have the contents
pasted in a wiki page directly as a <code></code> block.
I like this for a few reasons. One is there is an associated Talk:
page for meta-comments, and information about the script can be put in
the wiki page. Also, scripts should be put in various categories e.g.
[[Category:Python scripts]], [[Category:Node tools]], etc.
As for tar.gz files, I don't know of a reason to block that.
With Jason's check and +1, I think this sounds like we should add
support for archives - I'll put in a range to cover gzip, bzip, zip,
and tar file extensions.
