without wanting to be fractious ... is it possible to retreive the
comments of a deleted aur package, maybe through rpc? As it looks, now
that the packages are gone, reasons can't be obtained any more, if
they were stored in comments.
I'd like to improve the paragraph on the wiki, but I'm not clear about
how these corner cases could be covered.
