There was also one package that was rebuilt against the wrong repo last
year and if I can easily prevent this issue and also help AUR users or
those that build from CPAN to detect their own problems I'd rather do
that. After all I also created libdeps in makepkg...

Nobody will expect that behaviour. I'm not going to change this (if it's
even possible).
