[plt-dev] Putting incomplete and untested libraries into PLaneT?

I have a lot of libraries that have been sitting around unfinished and 
unreleased for years.

I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to put some of these in 
PLaneT, as-is.

The purposes would be to at least preserve the code written already, to 
give myself a baseline to then incrementally improve upon, and (I dream) 
to hook some mythical benefactor who will want to fund finishing the 

The two main drawbacks of putting incomplete code in PLaneT are that I 
have to be careful not to give myself a reputation for releasing 
"broken" libraries, and -- why I'm asking PLT people -- I don't want to 
set a precedent of simply dumping crap into PLaneT.

Any thoughts?
