I don't know if such a thing exists, but for Ike's idea of little scripts 
and/or "scriplets", it would be nice to have both a repository and a 
forum-like commenting system linked to the code.  That would allow folks 
to post small changes/additions for review by the community, or for some 
more generic scripts or functions, add some explanation or examples of 
usage.  Sadly, none of the (dated) web-accessible code repositories I know 
of incorporate such a thing.
