Yep, it checks for duplicate package names in the official repos and the
AUR, see [1]. It'll output duplicate package names and, optionally, AUR
links to affected packes. Of course, packages will always have to be
checked manually before removing but since AUR packages usually should
*never* have the same name as packages in the official repos, this
shouldn't be a big deal...

It would just be much easier if any TU would do that. No need for
constant additional removal requests via aur-general.
