May I add that arch is designed to take that pattern and amplify it?

Maybe Mekinok should be my customer with all of their excess millions
in the bank, and seeing as how fixing the infrastructure is so central
to their mission :-). (<--- sarcasm).

   One of the reasons Mekinok built on debian and provided an apt-source
   of our own is so that we could put out security upgrades to customers
   rapidly, and inform them of how best to pull them down [and give them
   confidence that they would go in cleanly, since we'd constrained their
   environments sufficiently.]

   Of course, that's just another example of the [lack of] relationship
   between "cool/superior/interesting technology" and "viable business"...
