.. which may not be received too well. There is a perception that
Developers *support* ~arch, which is a skewed outlook; it's there for
testing, it is *not* meant to be used by 99.5% of end users.  It is a
means to an end, a way to track packages which *may* be stable, a QA
process.

ie:  The following would/should be entirely acceptable:

<User>  I'm running ~arch of libfoo and it's breaking appwoo, help!
        Need this to work, really *REALLY* badly!

<Dev>   We're aware of those issues, but libfoo works fine for most
        of the other apps which require it.  No ETA on the fix,
        tough sh*t for running ~arch on a critical box.

<User>  Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

If you're interested in helping that QA process, most of the
architecture teams now have an 'Arch Tester' (AT) setup you could help
out with...
