[squeak-dev] Fixes for possible abandoned squeaksource.com projects

The easiest tweak I can think of would be to add a "Inbox" tab to the
Project page.  Anyone can then be allowed to submit to the project.
Internally, all versions are stored in the same project directory, but the
legacy Versions tab would be changed to filter only the versions which are
authored by those with write access, while the Inbox tab would show those
without write access.

Without the above, since only admin-level can delete submitted versions,
and configuration is a separate issue from source code repository, I've
started opening up my repositories for public write access.  Why did I ever
think I wanted to discourage contributions?  It theoretically opens them up
for spam attacks, but we haven't seen that with our Inbox.
