The obvious solution is to create a parallel ccl-contrib repository on github. Many projects handle contribs in that or similar ways.

Quicklisp offers one example of a handy means of compiling and distributing libraries. It's not a solution in itself because Zach understandably wants to keep Quicklisp implementation-agnostic, but maybe one of us could make a small extension to quicklisp that borrows its facilities to easily find and download CCL contribs.

Or maybe just having a ccl-contrib repo on Github is enough.
