I'm maintaining The Unarchiver PKGBUILD [1] in the AUR. The Unarchiver is an
objective-c application for uncompressing archive file. This is AFAIK the
only free implementation of RARv3 format.

As this application provides an unrar functionnality, does it make sense to
add a "provides=('unrar')" field in the PKGBUILD? The Unarchiver is not a
drop-in replacement for the "unrar" command. The binary are not the same and
the syntax is different.
