Short answer: Please don't do this sort of magical garbage. As an AUR
helper author, I send apples full of razor blades to people who do this.

Long answer: If you insist, you can probably fool the AUR with a
redefinition, in the same way that split packages are done, e.g.

: && pkgver=$(<<<cat sed statement)

The first definition of the pkgver will still be the one that remains as
the AUR's recognized version, though.
