Arch typically only patches packages when there is a good reason for it.
In general, this makes it easier for packagers, users and those who want
to debug and is part of KISS which Parabola claims to respect in the
Social Contract.

I think the question should be whether Hello is a good reason for a
patch (i.e. removal) in libre and whether it is a good reason for a
patch in nonprism. An alternative would be having a separate
iceweasel-no-hello package while retaining Hello in the ordinary
iceweasel package.

Clear criteria would help. Is libre only about the four freedoms, i.e.
use of a free software license? What is nonprism about, e.g. should
ekiga be blacklisted in your-privacy because it does not support
encryption yet?
