Because there are people who don't use (much) proprietary software and
still want to benefit from Arch. We are not only a free distribution but
I think its a nice addition to have free kernels available. Also another
kernel maintainer can make the normal kernel testing faster than it is
now. I appreciate the work on free software and we should give users the
freedom of choice.
