Done in the new "script" plugin (added in version 0.3.9): now you can "hold" a script, so it is not updated any more (see /help script).

By the way, weeget.py is now an obsolete script, it has been replaced by this "script" plugin.

As said in the summary, if you modify a scripts locally, weeget's upgrade function is quite useless.

1st solution could be to make it possible marking a script as 'hold', and then if doing an upgrade, download the script, but save it e.g. as 'scriptname.ext.new'. (explicit hold)

2nd, store modification time of installed scripts, and while doing an upgrade, check current mtime of the script and compare it to that stored one, if current mtime is newer, use solution for saving described under #1. (implicit hold)

Finally, throw a hint if script couldn't be overwritten during upgrade.

Surely, implementing something like #1 and #2 would be best :)
