An unsupported, or "use at your own risk," modules section on the FTP site
would certainly make finding these easier, and allow for a central
repository that will remain up as long as RANCID is supported. As it stands
now they are hosted on various FTP/Web servers, which will probably be
broken links as time goes by.
