ABS/AUR anyone?

I kind of agree here, this seems like a very specialized thing, which
I'm sure is helpful for some, but the Gentoo bug report you linked to
showed this patch was not without its own problems. Can we at least
bring up patching our core tools on the ML before going ahead and
doing it? If you don't get any feedback, then go right ahead, but
knowing things like this in advance might let other developers speak
up first.
