Description

There currently is no document in the developer guide that describes how to create an executable script following our "code in python/script/, nearly-empty executable in bin.src" convention. We have a community post with links describing how to document such a script, but no central location for someone writing a new script.

I'm not sure if this should go under Python or DM Stack in the dev guide.

So it doesn't get lost, there's a discussion of all the advantages of the current convention on #dm-middleware.

I'd vote for "DM Stack" since I think the solution will end up being deeply integrated with how the Stack (like Science Pipelines) is architected.

Other DM Python code, that uses setuptools for instance, would use a different way of writing executable scripts.
