I think that for consistency with Archlinux there should be a check
for only .tar.gz
But maybe make it easy to allow other types, or to switch to a single
other type.
(if anyone wants to use AUR outside Archlinux with a different archive
type for some reason)

If you assume them to be correct how can you reject them?

Is it possible for TUs and devs to overwrite any package? If so this
should be enabled for those types of users.
