Can you elaborate on that please.

Do you mean the source code of them as-is? I can see this become a bit 
of a hassle as the actual scripts are updated. We'd then have to 
remember to copy each change into the appendix as well so it matches.

We could consider an automatic method where during each commit (of the 
entire book or only have it trigger when a certain appendix is updated) 
it finds the bootscript code and imports it verbatim.

I'm not sure that's a great way to do things. But I'm open to ideas of 

Otherwise the rest of your email was clear. It just needs to be uploaded 
into Trac for future reference so it doesn't get forgotten.
