We discussed a bit about this before, but i was unable to get a working
PKGBUILD because of the issue with make install.
It's great that you solved it. :)
Actually, in some time the new 0.5 version should come out, giving us the
possibility to update the package without deleting or provoking problems
with aur helpers... I think you should mantain it if you are interested :)
