It's an experiment I've been working on for some time.  To appease
Heiko I've removed all trace of personality and variety from the form

I've also come across a bug in the AUR.  In short, the tarball URL
provided by the RPC interface is different from the tarball taken from
the html page.  The RPC tarball is *exactly* what was uploaded.  While
the html tarball has been sanitized.  So let's say someone uploads
something that is not even a tarball.  The AUR fixes this and pushed
it to the html.  The RPC link goes to the original, and Mr Robot
complains.  Human looks at html tarball and sees nothing wrong.
Confusion abound.  I'll remove those comments.
