To my knowledge, this is a namcap limitation (I've never used yaourt
before). As to why I've never filed a bug - I don't think it's that much of
a big issue. namcap is a complementary packaging tool; it isn't fool-proof.
It's supposed to be a secondary aid - the first is your judgement from
careful practice.

Fixing the "+" problem in AUR won't be of much help IMHO (but I recall it
was in the TODO list). Such a package can come with "p" instead, and when/if
it gets to a supported repository there'd be nothing to complain about.
