Re the original question, I'd suggest you ask on tur-users if any TU 
wants to maintain it in Community. If not, we can move it to Unsupported 
for anyone to pick up there. Community would be preferable, of course, 
but IMO it wouldn't be a bad result at all if an enthusiastic AUR user 
maintained the PKGBUILDs in Unsupported, possibly accompanied by an 
unofficial repo for the compiled packages. After all, that's how 
Shadowhand started it off in the first place.
