The trouble is that I can't imagine a canned message that everyone
will like. (For example, I quite dislike the current one.) That's
exactly the situation in which some configurability is helpful.
Some configurability is nice for other situations, anyway. For
example, sites serving a multilingual audience may want the message to
vary based on the user's language (or even source IP). The message
can include a list of available repositories or extra information that
changes over time. And so on.
Hope that helps,
