Could you also do this for the arch variable?  Pierre told me that,
currently, using 'any' arch in split packages doesn't work.  I haven't
had the time to see what prevents this (makepkg? devtools? dbscripts?)
but I have a hunch that not having the arch variable overridden might
play a part in that.  A such fonctionality will be useful to provide
big API docs in a seperate 'any' package.

Another thing (I can submit a FR in flyspray if you prefer) that would
be nice:  being able to build specific packages from a splitted
PKGBUILD. I think that makepkg should build all packages by default
and have an option that allows us to specify the desired packages to
be built.
