Many bash scripts are scatter across the web, and I'm sure that a lot
efforts has been wasted for developing the same things over and over

that future development can be based on others existing work.

Does anybody have any interest on this project?

I'm pretty much sure there are people interested.

It may be difficult to write safely re-usable bash code, but pretty much 
the same is true of emacs lisp and that didn't prevent people 
from writing tons of libraries and useful programs. 

All in all that can perhaps lead to the creation of some coding standard 
(eg, always put the name of your module in front of your variables and the like)
and with the help of modern vcs to hopefully better shell code examples 
with the help of peer reviewing.
