What's wrong with just putting an @author-email or @owner-email tag in 
the script and matching that up with the email in their gmd.c or us.o 
[I'm new here, so forgive me if this is dumb.]
Cheers, Kimbo

The site would then verify the magic token at that URL.  Then any script w/ a download URL at the same directory or lower would automatically be associated to that user.
