So perhaps the switch isn't strictly necessary, but it's much easier to use. Your method requires knowledge of how pacman is implemented and could change as pacman's implementation is changed. I'd definitely rather use the --bell switch I implemented.
I don't think this is an unreasonable feature request so I don't mind if Allan wants to accept it, but as far as I can tell you are the only one interested in it. Personally, I'm not inclined to add features when the desired effect can already be achieved using existing features and only one person seems want it.
I do not have a strong opinion on the inclusion/exclusion of this feature.
Given it is zero effort to maintain and adds no overhead, I am leaning towards accepting. But this will need to wait for pacman > 5.0
