The issue, which has already been mentioned, is going to be the lack of direct
download links. This makes approval impossible. I suspect (I could be wrong)
that I am the only admin to own all of the bundles. I have no interest in being
the one to approve all these scripts. I think it would be best if they were
maintained separately from SBo.

As a side note, I haven't found any of the games to require system-wide
installation. They all live happily under ~/humble/ for me.
