Also in favour of a comments system.

The problem I see with data files is that they could be potentially
large. There may be a way around the problems associated with this, though.

Maybe I am a bit naive, but I can't think of many common circumstances
where a code fragment or program which is potentially useful to many
people would be more helpful by providing a data file, since most people
who would find said code useful would already have access to their own
data set.

I do, however, see the benefit of having some set of sample data on
SciPy-Central, but perhaps this data set should be generic in that many
different code contributions could reference it in a useful way.

My two cents.
