[aur-general] determining inverse AUR dependencies of binary packages

I'll start this discussion with an example of the problem.
I notice that python-sqlalchemy is about to change in [community].
Most of the packages which depend on it will need to change their
dependency to python2-sqlalchemy. This is handled quite nicely for
packages in the binary repositories. If you do a package search on
www.archlinux.org, you'll see which packages require python-sqlalchemy.
Likewise, it is easy to get a list of [unsupported] packages which
require a given package from [unsupported]. However, I don't know of a
way to get a list of [unsupported] packages which require a given
package from the binary repositories. If it were possible to build such
lists, we could contact maintainers of [unsupported] packages, in order
to inform them of upcoming changes which require their attention.
