My two cents on the issue: Please avoid top posting.
Well IMO this would be a reason to write a feature request for the
aur-helper you're using, in fact I guess there are helpers that check
for existence of installed packages.
What I don't know is if the AUR ID number will be redirected on merged
packages, which could help implementing replacing /
we-changed-things-on-aur features. I don't think automatically adding
replaces or stuff like this will help because the PKGBUILD is
something we don't want to alter through code in AUR.
