Well, the svn package is of course the best of the PKGBUILDs you can find in 
AUR. Though it cannot be used to build a package for the [extra] repo.

The chromium browser is really becoming a usable browser and there is quite a 
high demand on having this in a repo.

So, if there are no objections I'll see if it can be packaged "the Arch way" 
(none of the packages in AUR are compatible with that right now) and I'll then 
discuss a possible inclusion with the others devs.
