right, and i suppose the majority of arch users do use binaries (i bet
nowadays even many gentoo users do) ... as long as a package manager is
involved the package maintainer of the binary has indirect root access
to your system...

there are ways to solve this btw ... in ubuntu it is snappy, redhat
works on atom and there are coreos and docker as well where the
maintainer root access gets automatically limited by the package
manager or by a container technology ... so that only the toplevel
distributor (who maintains the package manager, app-store or repository
itself) has full access ...
