Seriously. While it's not ideal, it has been done.
I would consider it the same as including bin/lib32 packages just to
include things like wine or whatever. The [community] repo is intended
for this kind of experimentation and freedom.

I think awesomewm has enough of a user base to justify such measures if
a TU is willing to maintain it.

I'm starting to get a bit peeved with people confusing [community] and
[unsupported] with the [core] and [extra] bits.
