Good point. I guess the real question is should this be handled by 
makepkg or the AUR website? I don't see it being very difficult to have 
it done by the AUR website. Of course, the url would have to be placed 
alone in a separate file (AUR does not and will not parse PKGBUILDS) 
Perhaps someone that is more familiar with AUR/makepkg development will 
chime in on this...
