does source code belong on the community wiki

I'd prefer to delete that page, as it's a trick that's of limited use, 
and is only linked from one place:

If you want to keep it though, I'd recommend deleting the C version and 
just going with the shell script.  A quick look suggests that it's 
basically the same, without the need to compile it.

On the wider point of code on the community wiki, I'd say that compiled 
code belongs in a PPA.  Getting ordinary users to compile code will lead 
to trouble, whereas giving them a PPA will make life easier for everyone.
