It's true they are not much different from regular PKGBUILDs now. The
new source array capabilities and pkgver() function (just realized I
forgot to add the pkgver line in the protos, will correct that if we
keep those protos) are well documented on [1]. Maybe we could drop the
bzr, git, hg and svn protos and keep only cvs and darcs until they are
supported in pacman as well.
