The short answer would be that it was the lightweight DM recommended to Archer's
for years before development stopped. A tempered migration from the repositories
is a good idea to prevent whip-sawing all arch users who following the
recommendation in configuring their desktop from finding out their config is
broken on the first reboot after update following removal.
