Bad experiences have thaught me not to do that. It might have, though.
I didn't follow the development of pacman, so I actually don't know if
there is a sort of check on available disk space yet.

Why not implement a '--no-cache' option for pacman, to delete the
downloaded tar.gz right after the successful installation of each pkg?
