Just to clarify, when people talk about keeping it simple and the
Arch way, they are not talking about having a simple, clean
interface for the user, they are talking about keeping the system
itself simple, as to reduce the likelihood of bugs, to make
maintenance simpler, to make extending the system easier, etc..
