Yeah, I mean no offense to the current rule, but AUR is a fantastic
part of Arch and not having *anything* which can install an AUR
package in Community seems... disingenuous to the adoption of AUR from
a fresh install. I understand this can be a political battle ("which
AUR helper is best") but cower sure seems like a great candidate to
just help people get started.
