The "magic" word is KISS that touches Archers' interest. It doesn't mean
it cannot be GUI, its something else what users consider as "simple". In
Arch "simple" is different what other distros are considering. Not easy
to grasp. The "the Arch way" is good to read before starting a project
for Arch.

What I didn't know, only recently, not confirmed, the selection of
language is also part of Arch's concept of KISS.
