I would agree...but once tla gets popular enough, we won't be the ones
paying those costs - some hacker or group of hackers out there will want
arch-on-Windows enough to sit down and do the dirty work to make it

Maybe their first iteration will be gross and hackish - but the cool
thing about arch is that they can easily maintain their own branch until
it's refined enough to integrate.
