I don't think it's related to that so much as the fact that they
require a rather large amount of room, and we have the Arch Games repo
to move them to for people who want the binaries. As I've said before,
any TUs who wish to move games from community are more than welcome to
continue maintaining them in arch-games. I'd wait for the moment
though, as hopefully we will have nondestructive package movement out
of community. (regarding votes and comments, etc)
