Good idea. Three PKGBUILDs only then.

The one is ready (chromium-browser-svn), so we don't have to take care about
it, it's OK.

The other two now: they must be autodownloading (like svn/git/cvs) the
zip(googlebot) or deb (ppa) and 32 or 64bit according to system's $CARCH

For the first one (googlebot), I already have a PKGBUILD ready for
suggestion. If the wikipage is going to be created, i'll post it.
For the second one (ppa), it's more difficult because, as I 've tried,
wget/curl/elinks (used in order to download the html code and parse it in
order to find the latest package), need a lot of commands to clear the html
code. And the names used by ppa are also huge.
