Michael, This may be over-kill, but something that may be of interest 
for organizing collections of objects is how the Zope community 
provides their so-called Products. Products in Zope are similar in some 
ways to scripts in GRASS. Check out http://www.zope.org/Products/. Zope 
is a content management system, which is pretty easy to setup and 
provides granular security levels and Zope also supports a 
review/publish workflow. So authors could obtain an account on Zope, 
submit their scripts, and the scripts would not be published until a 
site manager approves them. Zope can run behind Apache.

Just a Thought...
