I'm wondering if you read me correctly. I'm saying that arch is

Yes, my point is that I tend to want to tell people that that's not ``the arch way,'' etc... Unfortunately, telling them that it's not ``the arch way'' just makes it sound like it can't do it. It certainly can work quite well, but it seems that with projects like postgresql, it really doesn't make sense.

I think that a lot of people get tricked. Arch is so incredibly good at
handling decentralized development, that few ever realize that arch is
*perfectly* capable at handling centralized development as well!

Yeah, it's more general than that. People think it's all complicated because you can do all of these things you can't do in other systems. Because it's so full of features, people believe it must also be hard to use.
