Yeah I'm concerned about how secure it is to actually source the
PKGBUILD in bash. I don't know if AUR really needs to cover every
exotic PKGBUILD out there. Having to set up a chroot seems like a bit
much. It would be nice to have all variables resolved though, and bash
could make it a lot simpler.
