I've been working on that one too.  Best I've got so far is to check
for a source array without any http or ftp links.  Though that mainly
hits a large number of font packages, which are already flagged as
containing binaries.  Checking for +x brings up false positives that
look like they were packages on windows machines.

Of +4800 packages, that is 1.2%.  The AUR is more than twice that
rate.  But while we are running the numbers to determine best

grep -r '|| return 1' /var/abs/ | wc -l == 6165
