[arch-general] Wrapper for yaourt and pacman

Thank you Gaetan, thank you William,

currently I have to manage 62 AUR packages, so using pacman only doesn't
provide what I need. I noticed that yaourt is a script, so I could take
a look at it, learn and include what I need to a wrapper for pacman, but
I don't like to do it that way.

You seem to have reasons not to like yaourt that much. Is one of the
other helpers listed at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_Helpers

FWIW I want to have a cache for AUR packages, like there is for the
official packages in /var/cache/pacman/pkg, linux-rt packages should be
stored to another directory.

I want to install linux and linux-rt headers first, because I need VBox

I want to add a history of what I've done when using pacman (and what
I've done using something to manage AUR packages, e.g. yaourt).

That's all, perhaps an app already does provide this?
