First of all, nobody really wrote /against/ this proposal and nobody said there's no need for a standard, so I suppose everyone's ok with it. If this is not the case, just speak up, otherwise I'll wait for a week from the last comment and then proceed to wikify it.

/ syntax is actually for replacement. The syntax above says "replace with nothing". The # and % syntax is for deletion (matching from the front or back of the word, respectively). I doubt there's any real difference as far as performance goes.
I'll keep the slash syntax, then, it's also simpler to customize. Thanks fo the great explanation :)
(2) you could use the jar command to extract a jar file instead of unzip. that's what it's made for. it's in the jdk which is a dependancy of eclipse. so you can expect user to have jar command and jdk package (jar is also in java-gcj-compat)
I modified the PKGBUILD to use jar instead of unzip, thanks. However I had to do some other changes. As I pointed out in the post: «I was noticed that I can directly use jar, which the user already has since it's part of the JRE. This is great, since it spares a makedepend! However, jar can't extract to directories other than the current one: this means that, after the directory creation, it's necessary to cd before extracting. Since there were many occurrences of the destination path I decided to use a custom variable even though somebody might not like it, because there's a great improvement in readability.»
