Hi all!

I currently maintain lib32-allegro [1] in its version 5.0. However, I
wanted to change its version to 4 (anything less than version5) and
add a lib32-allegro5 (anything >=5). The idea is to follow packages
allegro [2] and allegro5 [3].
I found a variable "epoch"[4], which if not set in PKGBUILD is equal
0. I could set "epoch=1" to force downgrade to lib32-allegro during
the system update and upload to AUR lib32-allegro5 for who wants it.

What do you think about this procedure? Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
