I'm definitely fine with that, although I wonder if it would make more
sense to host separate repositories for the individual "ports" since
they are (generally speaking) re-implementations. 

That way, individual implementors could be given full control over
their relevant repos. I think in particular if a large number of
developers want their code trees hosted through robotfindskitten.org
it could get unwieldy.
