Best idea would be NOT to put it into the texlive tree which may be erases
by an update, but to put it into a private place or local place.

On unix like systems put it into 
and call mktexlsr. On windows - there must be something similar.

If you get a .sty/.tex file then copy those files straight to the
subdir, if you get .dtx/.ins then call tex on the .ins file which 
should produce .sty/.tex etc files. Read the install instructions.

OK, so ten out of ten for style, but minus several million 
for good thinking, yeah?
