Yes you are right Scott *provided one NEEDS a gui*, and then yaourt is NOT
a suitable replacement. <- All of which explains why I specifically used
the words "suggest" and "works nicely for what I need", and I guess I
should further emphasize that I used the word "I".

If one does NOT need a gui, then yaourt *IS* a fine replacement, and one I
am happy to recommend. Which is why I did so.

Very best regards;
