Thanks!  I have been doing that though...  Like I said, aside from the 
Pro-Audio Overlay, I'm going with stable packages for everything in the 
whole distro...(except for the HP print manager HPLIP, which only works 
with my printer in a masked version...which works perfectly!).

I suppose there are people who run ~arch for everything...probably 
developers though.

Yeah, I'm on it now.  It seems to only get one message every few days.
