I would actually argue that the answer to your strawman question
is "yes", but as I implied in another message, I had been unaware
of (or had forgotten about) Functions/{Examples,Misc}.  Since those
directories already exist, I'd have no particular objection to
shipping your toy in one of them, if so desired.

What I actually said (as opposed to the lie you just told) is that
I think it is inappropriate for the shell to natively duplicate
functionality that already exists, merely to provide an alternate
visual representation that you personally like better.
