Well, I am not since I use surf with the stock configuration :)

Even if I weren't, I don't use Yaourt or any automatic upgrade tool (but I do have a script that checks and warns me if my packages are outdated) so the way it works now is OK for me.

I always install everything with Pacman when I can because it can track the files in my system tree for me. I create custom PKGBUILDs if I need to, even if they have to be ugly.

Anyway, I think surf should stay in AUR and be maintained so I'm ready to take ownership of the package if you choose to disown it.
