Could synaptic be made to work seamlesly with Arch?
I think just making synaptic work flawlessly with Arch package manager (pacman) would pretty much redefine what Arch can be and may be the first step to creating a customized Arch distribution or Arch based GNU/Linux distro.
If this can be done, then all we need is enhance autodetection and autoconfiguration of Arch while not compromising the simplicity of resulting conf files to end up with Arch based distro made to "just work" out of the box. Frugalware has probably done alot in this field, but instead of synaptic they use their own frugalpkg, with which I haven't had much good experiences thus far. I'm not yet sure how seamless their autodetection and autoconfiguration is.
Anyway, what do you think?
