That's what happens when you try to put magical crap in a PKGBUILD. The
AUR's PKGBUILD parser is (correctly) simplistic and will not execute
arbitrary code like this.

Someone should adopt this and fix it, or it should be nuked.

@CryptoCrack: shouldn't we at least follow the same validation rules as
makepkg as far as pkgver goes? No dashes, no whitespace, etc... Yes yes,
I'm sure this is a "patches welcome" scenario.
