First of all kde-mod is a good project, but their binaries are not
official, and they can duplicate what they want on their repos.

I can't remove it since I resigned on my TU position, but if I were tu
I'd like to discuss about removal (like I am doing) before do it.

And if you will be continue using your package then you got the idea
about the "Arch's way", and you realized that ABS rocks, and I am glad
you got it.
