How does:

mlmmj-contrib-perl 
mlmmj-contrib-php

....sound?

I /could/ put the files under /usr/share/mlmmj/contrib/ (rather than a mess
of webserver-dependent roots)- this way admins can copy the respective
trees to wherever their webserver requires them and give permissions/
ownership accordingly.

By the way, I've updated my RPM to the latest upstream 1.2.6.1, which folds
in the moderation race with the previous version, cuts the clutter and fixes
many other issues. Reviews (and package approval!) welcomed.
