So you would appreciate it? I certainly can submit a patch for this one ;).

Yeah, you are right. Seems that I have mixed up something here. I was
playing around with HTTPS Everywhere and had it disabled for testing
purposes. Totally my fault, I'm sorry.

What about the CPE entry? Any interest in that? As said, this obviously
has to be done by someone officially connected to Arch Linux, but from
my understanding it shouldn't cost anything.
