Yes, I saw this; another AUR bug, that I suppose is reported right now 
(i will check the FlySpray in a few hours but now i can't)..

Plus, i thought even if I can't remove the directory of the package (cuz 
I don't have that kind of permissions, and the AUR script doesn't work) 
someone should do it from the website in any case.

My humble opinion of course.
