I've seen a lot of this attitude recently, and I really want to say
that I find it decidedly un-Arch-like.  "Why support the users when we
can just do it our way?"

I've always been a fan of arch because it becomes what _I_ want, not
what some packager decided I wanted.  I'm pretty sure this is true of
a lot of people.

Hrm, I'd recommend making a new thread for this topic here.  Let's not
hijack James' topic.
