contrib/ populates data/nomail with accounts marked as disabled in the passwd file. But data/nomail has been killed 5 years ago in Bugzilla 3.0, see bug 100953. So this means this script is of no use since 2006 and nobody ever complained, which is a good indication of its popularity. We should simply remove this script from our repo.

If someone wants to rewrite a similar script using the perl language and interacting with the DB via our User methods, he should feel free to do so. But this script as is must go away.

Let's also remove obsolete scripts from contrib/README.
