I wouldn't know how to do that without just coping GetComponents and not
having it in a repository.

I agree with that. It would be kind of strange to have both bin/ and exe/
(I don't like the name exe/ so much anyway), but I think we could live
with that.

I think I should have, but never tried. Eric should probably also give
you, and a couple of other maintainers access - but I guess he needs to
know your github id for that.

I would not delete it. At the very least I would replace it with a
script which prints a message pointing to the new location.
