I'm just lazy, like very lazy, and the youtube-dl model looks appealing
to me: trusting someone dedicated to a naked representation
of a single website, not doing the scraper yourself... I although know
well that a package manager or a single standard distrib leads
to drawbacks like dbus, keith packard and the funny story of lpad
on npm (node devs deserved it in full!) [0].
