I'd vote for that (the idea, not necessarily the name). If what Scott says is
true, it sounds like Tom's been given enough chances in the past, and he just
isn't going to be a reliable maintainer.

That's probably because you haven't hit any serious issues. Doesn't mean you
won't do in future though. That's why we should be concerned about arch going
unmaintained. It could bite us all in the ass later on down the road.
(Fortunately though the design of arch, and the practice of mirroring, should
make significant information loss unlikely.)
