Just to be a bit fun and showcasing contrib tooling. You don't actually *need*
to create a TODO for rebuild-todo. You can pipe a search from `pkgsearch` (also
from contrib, previously named co-maintainers) directly into `rebuild-todo`.

$ pkgsearch -p Foxboron -r community | rebuild-todo --community -m "package rebuild" -

This would rebuild all my packages from communtiy. pkgsearch is a bit slow, but
I promise that it works :)

Please do note that `rebuild-todo` won't necessarily keep track of what it has
and hasn't rebuilt. Also do note you need to specify the repositories since
`rebuild-todo` doesn't understand where packages belong :)

Hopefully I'll get some more tooling improvements done for package rebuilds. But
this is already quite neat and handy.
