[aur-dev] Package blacklist for the AUR

I recently started working on a package blacklist for the official AUR
which can e.g. be used to prevent people from uploading packages in the
official repos to [unsupported] (cf. FS#12902 [1]). Patches can be found
in the "pkg-blacklist" branch of my working tree [2]. They currently
include some code that adds a "PackageBlacklist" table and a hacky
helper utility that can be used to update that table by sync'ing it with
some binary repos.

Constructive criticism and suggestions welcome!
