I was trying to clarify your statement that "The burden falls on the
user to make sure that his system is sane." You said that in the context
of source packages, like AUR, contrasting the situation with a binary
repository where "The burden falls on the developers who provide the
binary packages to make sure that all binary packages are mutually
compatible." So, I guess you were saying that we ("developers") do *not*
have to care whether the packages we upload to AUR are mutually
compatible, because that's the users problem.
Did I understand that right?
