Thanks, this is my thought too, that's why I add those repos at the end
of the list. So if there should e.g. be a broken codec in "nightly" it
won't be installed, if there already is this codec in "production". I
guess a broken "studio" app won't break the complete Arch install, but
perhaps "mate" could cause issues regarding to GTK libs, that are able
to break the complete install.
