I think if we should discuss this if the AUR helper does not hide the build 
process itself from the user. Cower for instance is for just downloading the 
taurball (you still have to run makepkg manually), and burp is for just 
uploading it. 

I would have nothing against having tools like this in [community]. But 
everything beyond that should be strictly rejected.
