This would be a suitable AUR project. You could provide a PKGBUILD which
implements this additional functionality, but *you* alone are responsible
for additional functionality which isn't maintained upstream.
If there is, in fact, demand for this feature, it would be well received on
the AUR.

It could be useful to model the vmware-patch[1] PKGBUILD, which provides a
post-installation patch to vmware. (I found this with a search and have not
tested it.)

Also, in the future, please consider not using "emergency" in the subject
line of this mailing list unless it is warranted.
