Oops, right.

True. Though, as far as I've seen, the vast majority of AUR packages have
low enough comment activity that the link will remain functional for quite
some time. You can also get a permanent link by capturing the anchor from
the "?comments=all" page. I think making the timestamp's href point to a
truly permanent link would be a good improvement on top of this change.
