I don't think there is any utility in supporting uncompressed packages
in dbscripts. Anyone who wants to customize this in a non-Arch Linux
deployment is free to do so...

If someone wants to use some deviant compression type because they're
positive it works better on those packaged files, I cannot think of a
compelling reason to say "no you're wrong", which is why I listed
everything else.

makepkg is inconsistent here, I pulled that from the makepkg.conf(5)
source. :D
