Hmm, I am apparently not knowledgeable at all in what "repackaging"
means. Since this is the first in the series of 6 patches, I'll have to
do a rebase (taking into account your other comments).

I'm thinking of keeping this patch, but just as a comment for all the
thousands of AUR packagers who blindly use the prototype without taking
into account their particular needs.

Any objections?
