Helpful files (python) and assimilating them into Moneydance

There are numerous helpful python scripts (and maybe other things) that are not extensions, but one has to either ask, or search through the forums to find them.

I've seen "put this feature into moneydance", as well as "can we have a page that lists helpful python scripts"....

I suggest a balance, though I know it puts a burden on Sean. Just as there is a list of extensions, and ways to update them and so on, what if there was a "Scripts" tab where you could load and run a script, and there was some text describing what this would do?

Might help, me thinks.

    FYI. I have written a Toolbox extension (based on Python) and I plan to release it today. It contains as many fix scripts as I could find along with much more. I am in discussion with Sean about adding any more that might be missing and hopefully it’ll be added to the main extensions list.

    Stuart, I'm a programmer (or rather was) from the days of Fortran and Cobol, and then later with php. Always curious about MD scripts. Never tried. Your efforts have inspired me to take a look and see what I might be able to do. So Thanks!

    I'm learning python as well, just for kicks and grins.
