Well from the POV of ardour's developers, ardour3 isn't even alpha or
pre-alpha yet, and this PKGBUILD just encourages those mythical 'stupid
users' to try out something which isn't for general users yet.

The problem here is that problems will be brought to them (the ardour
devs) rather than to this list or the comments on the AUR package. If a
post_install message alleviates that problem it's all good, I think.
