Personally I think we would be better off with just these scripts +
lots of documentation. If you are interested in an installer, then I
guess the best solution is to get involved with the AIF and get it
into shape again.

I think this is a good thing (once we have proper documentation). It
forces users to understand how their system is set up, and how to fix
it in case of problems. Unlike with other distributions (e.g. Ubuntu),
I think this is a necessity when using Arch, and making this clear
from the beginning should hopefully save both us and users from lots
of grief.
