[cut: introduction of the "extra" collection]

For the sake of simplicity I slightly prefer merging the current
contrib with the opt collection, without adding an extra collection.

This way we can maintain the current purpose of the collections,
adjusted for the new contrib:

- base: don't go out without this
- opt: you almost certainly need some of these,
  and they're well maintained
- contrib: 3rd party, handle with care
