Thanks and fair enough but I didn't see anything in AUR guidelines that 
suggested I shouldn't. Snarky comments (ZOMG) are also neither helpful 
nor productive.

That said, point taken and I won't do it again. Consider my wrists duly 

In my defense, I had no way of knowing how quick the turnaround would 
be on the official package. Very pleased it was only a couple of days :)
