Is it safe to use Archlinux's repository within Manjaro Linux installation?

If it is, all I need to do is just add some line to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist, right?

I don't know about Manjaro, but you shouldn't mess with standard repository, you could possibly ruin your system (i.e., the system libraries might just conflict).

I guess you just want to install some specific package, so use abs to retrieve it, and generate a package manually, then install it with pacman -U XX.xz
