Thanks for the clarification but I understood already. Anthony's post was
more of a open-ended proposal (or I perceived it to be), it was not "This is
my idea--let's do this." And it was directed more towards core packages like
the kernel and pacman rather than all packages.

I just felt the OP's post was undeservedly ended before a discussion could
even start.
