I don't see the module itself as a problem - I solved that in about 10 
minutes. I only posted here because the guideline surprised me and I had 
a suggestion to bring it more in line with general Arch policy (as I 
understood it). I will also not complain if my suggestion gets rejected 
- I fully appreciate your sentiments.

Thanks! I've posted my suggestion (http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/8840) 
and now I can shut up.

Click "Request Re-open" button.
