I would agree that the tool doesn't belong within the normal release
distributions. I don't believe the majority of users will need to run
the Web Builder locally and don't think they should suffer an
relatively large increase in the size of the normal source
distribution to accommodate this application. However, I think it
would be nice for this to live in the official dojo foundation account
on github although I'm not overly fussed as long as the it's owned by
the foundation.

Maybe we could offer a create a kitchen-sink release, which included
the normal Dojo release plus a selection of tertiary tools, like the
Web Builder and other new utilities projects? Or have the official
dojo account on github offer a meta-repository which included
sub-modules for dojo source and other tools that people could clone to
get everything?
