Yes but he does not like it.
And this is not a pretty way, because makepkg download will just fail
rather than showing a message to ask a manual download.
So i think a better way is to not mark the file in source var, and
doing checking by hand and ask to download if not present.

But in this PKGBUILD, he uses source var to make checking. And on AUR
zip file is not uploaded. So i'm wondering if they are an option or he
deleting file manually.
