Personally, I think having -git (or -svn or -bzr, etc) in the package
name is a Good Idea(tm). That makes it much easier to track which
packages need to be updated by "re-installing" them, as the PKGBUILD
doesn't generally change with each new release, thus forcing an update.

Has anyone written a tool that can list the packages I've installed
that get recreated via an SCCS update? I suppose you would have to
parse the PKGBUILD to find that out, if it isn't in the package name.
