I would like to write a script for Australia using http://www.bom.gov.au as a 
source.

Their copyright statement http://www.bom.gov.au/other/copyright.shtml 
section "Secondary Distribution of Bureau of Meteorology Information 
Currently Freely Available on the Bureau's Web Site", I believe gives 
repackage rights provided a copyright statement is attached.  Something 
like " Copyright Commonwealth of Australia 2007, Bureau of Meteorology".  
Could such a line be added to display pages.

How are the scripts to be organised?  For example all Australian scripts with 
Australia-* or au-*.  And then the site eg. -www.bom.gov.au-
