I think you misunderstood. I was not suggesting that you simply re-add the
information to the wiki with different wording.

artoo's method was already rejected from the wiki for several reasons as
pointed out on the talk page. If you find the current method on the wiki
lacking, then you will need to come up with some new method that both
improves on the wiki's method and avoids the pitfalls of artoo's.

Again, this is not about lack of choice. This is about a particular choice
being deemed unfit for the wiki. Any method that *relies* on an unofficial
repository (i.e. has no AUR alternative) is certainly not appropriate.
