I'm sorry, but still I don't see the difference between AUR and this.
The package will be maintained by Maxime, so it's already "official"

You don't lose bandwidth, neither CPU cycles in this case (well,
except for compression which could be set to plain tar anyway).

I guess there's no need for an extra repository since we have AUR.
