Before I even dive into the patch, I asked Xavier to send this one here for opinions from others. I am currently in favor of not removing the --force option from repo-add, so that one would not have to rebuild a package in order to mark it as force in a database that might be on a different computer from where you built the package, so makepkg -R is unavailable. But I would love to hear your thoughts.
Just for clarifying my point of view, I didn't like this special handling of the force flag. There are many other options you can get wrong in the PKGBUILD, and these aren't fixed by using repo-add flags. They are fixed in the PKGBUILD itself. I just like the idea of having everything in a single place ;)
I agree with Xavier here. The special force handling was annoying, and should be deleted no that the force metadata is in the package
