I feel the need to express my position for a variety of reasons, the
most prominent being I am the one who proposed the discussion about
the automatic service stopping before uninstalling. Let me state this
again: I proposed the *discussion* about it, since there was no
official guideline. I never asked to implement it, even though at that
time I saw it as a defect. My opinion has changed since then.

As a TU I take my work very seriously and I feel responsible for my
own decisions. This is the reason why I prefer to ask when there's no
official policy, and the above case demonstrated it is a good
practice. I often don't take into account a variety of factors which
later show up to be fundamental, that's why when I come up with
proposals that sound like "handholding", "un-archish" or just plain
ugly I ask devs, TUs and the community what they think about them. I
am still learning and I need their experience.

Please take my proposals and questions as an effort to follow the Arch
Way, and not as an attempt to change it.

Do 3+ years of Arch make me an "old timer"? I think so. Count me on that list.
