this happens quite often when developers create new packages from proto
files and don't look at AUR. When I create new packages, I take a look
in AUR to see if there's a reasonable looking PKGBUILD already. If it's
usable, I use it and give credit to the creator. In this case, I think
Tobias overlooked your AUR package and created a new one himselves.
