They were documented where used, not in the array.. which I did to 
keep the array from becoming unwieldy.

I've now added it to the array, making it more unwieldy.

We really need to agree on some conventions about how to do this 
stuff. If someone trying to balance the factors and do the right 
thing and do no wrong can't get it right, the solution isn't just to 
say "document these patches please". I already did that, just not 
where people were looking, apparently.

The problem isn't the lack of documentation, it's, as James pointed 
out, that the PKGBUILD is a disaster and needs some normalization 
applied to it.
