15 Aye, sticking with ~arch is still the best right now. Perhaps soon, we can
16 look at @system going stable once ~arch is nailed down. It's a bit of a
17 slippery slope when you go stable, because the number of packages that users
18 want to see stabilized usually goes up, not down. Especially once you start
19 supporting *anything* under X11.
