We shouldn't disqualify something just because it's "that something" (:
They're being excluded not because they have relation to "debs and rpms",
but because they fall in the same paradigm as tools like yaourt, well
somewhat at least. We already have - for administrative purposes -
rpmextract and checkinstall.

Wow, this one's received a lot of attention in such a short time. Infamous
is the word, hate is the subject?
