In terms of ease of deployment, I have to agree with Ike, I still believe
it is easier to install a package from one of our repos (only one command
and you're good) than from AUR. However Pierre has a good point, the
current terms don't seem to corroborate what Plex' devs have been saying on
the forums. Even if this doesn't end up in [community], I will still need
the terms to change if I want to include it in my own repo. I will discuss
this with them.

In the meantime, I'll contact the current maintainer to get my changes into
the AUR package, or adopt it if possible.
