It is an interesting idea, but I can see some down sides.  For
example, whenever you do an svn update and get new scripts, you'd need
to run --script-updatedb before you would see the new scripts.  Also,
Nmap is oftwn run by unprivileged users who can't write to the Nmap
system-wide scripts directory.  So we'd probably need to generate the
file at install time.  And that seems more complicated and error-prone
than our current system.
My thought is, if it's generated on the fly, you wouldn't ever need to
write to the file. That would solve all your issues. The downside, I
suppose, is that it wouldn't be scalable.
