Through the NCR Partners ( An organization of Teradata Customers ) you have the ability to submit a Teradata Enhancement request.

Currently there is no way to track which functions are being RE ENGINEERED at every customer to the point that we could filter the most widely used functions to the top and release them as a Teradata Add-on either bundled or as a separate orderable product.
Our Profession services team has implemented a set of Oracle/DB2 compatible functions.
However I belive they are only being 'sold' to new customer installations which are migrating from Oracle/db2 to Teradata as part of the migration services package or as part of other Professional services engagements.
I don't know if there is a way to 'purchase' these libraries from the profession services organization directly.

Teradata Forum has a repository for attachments, maybe you could encourage the List administrator to maintain a repository of UDF's.

I left off the code in the middle but that is easy enough to add and then by changing the code in the middle ( and the name of the UDF ) you can easly add
