accepted.  for what it's worth, pkstats seems too "passive" an
interaction to me.  i feel more involved in any system when i can make
active decision about what goes where (even if it's just one voice in
the wilderness saying, "hey, wouldn't this be cool?!?").  hence why i
run arch.

then again, i have no hands-on experience managing packages, so my
opinion is entirely from the user-side.  maybe it's just my humanities
degree showing :)


p.s.: greg, i thought you left!
