Hmm it seems like all it takes to move a package from community to
unsupported is to upload the tarball with buildscripts via the AUR
interface (pkgsubmit.php). Votes and comments are preserved.

So if we're doing a clean up, we can disable tupkgupdate to be safe.
tupkgupdate only runs a minute after the hour every hour.
It shouldn't be a problem really.
