I under stand what you saying,I found these orphaned PKGBIULDs in AUR
with what your said magical garbage and made the AUR looks aweful.So I
adopted them and trying to correct that,but I didn't know what exaclty
should be done to these nightly build kind of PKGBUILD whith automatic
detecting pkgver tricks,that why this mail came to the list?

I will update them with the removing of all that tricks.
