If that's the case then why don't you try updating the PKGBUILD weekly
or something? I'm sure weekly wouldn't be that hard, and wouldn't be too
often either. I'd hate it if "yaourt -Syu --aur" built something every
other day.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, you're going to have to find some way to stop
makepkg from bumping the pkgver automatically for you. The easiest way
would be to mess up the -git suffix somehow. --holdver isn't used by
yaourt, so people using yaourt may find it irritating.
