Yes, when things could use improvement the only good way to deal with
it is to remove it outright. You're the fountain of wisdom.

I don't know what you should do. Start your own AUR fork called
funAUR? Start a blog where you list features in applications that
should be removed for not being perfect? Write a semi-successful
linux-based webcomic where you're the angsty main character? As long
as you stop posting on the mailing list.

I will gladly close your bug.
