We generally tell people that we do not support AUR packages and because
of this there are no AUR (download/install) helpers in the repos. If you
start adding such dependencies that goes against this idea of separation.
Actually I can't even think of a way to explain why AUR helpers and AUR
packages are not supported while at the same time telling people to
install them. This just doesn't fit.
Just pull the packages into the repos or don't include the deps.
