    In most cases having a PKGBUILD as a starting point surely is nice.
I just think that it shouldn't be an official Archlinux thing. Also,
there were a lot of bad PKGBUILD's that wouldn't serve as a starting
point for anything. The main purpose of the purge was to get rid of
orphan and unmaintained packages anyway. I guess that if all of the Arch
users didn't needed them in more than the two months that it took to
migrate AUR3 to AUR4, it is a safe bet to say that there won't be much
use for them in the near future. And, if there is an unofficial archive,
it's ok. But I think that Archlinux shouldn't spend resources on an
official one.
