Just a query if this crosses the line into to distro policy (i.e. RFC 
Land) from TU self-governing policy land?  I'm OK with this being 
discussed as an RFC (openness and visibility is good), but my initial 
reaction was this could have been discussed "internally" by the 
maintainers of the AUR (TUs) using aur-general.
