+1 this was the primary reason I wanted a tarball.

The main difficulty is you have to have a parabola machine or a machine 
with pacstrap in order to install on ARM, rather than a machine with 
just dd or the like.

As much as I like parabola and hope everyone installs, 'normal' people 
who use other distros, or use a different distro as their main driver, 
who wish to install on ARM, perhaps just to test or whatever, may find 
it easier if they can just copy the contents of an archive to sd and boot.
