Good point. If a location for the free download can be easily
determined, can be found, I'll provide a real-player alert script
that warns you when new packages appear. Hmm. I need to look at where
this is advertized. Perhaps optionally download it for you, and run
mk-realplayer on the result.

I see. Well, I guess, given this, I am not going to take over
your package. I'll just create a set of packages that conflict with
yours. As I said, the itch is getting enough for me to scratch.

Sorry. The whole idea of my realplayer package is to be a
lower hassle package; it won't periodically bother you. Since you are
threatening the next maintainer with bug reports unless they follow
your directions, I'm not too keen on taking it.
