So, what if I would build a package which contains an .install file
with an `rm -Rf /` in its post_install() function and upload it to AUR?
That's a totally valid package, totally valid bash, which can easily be
uploaded to AUR and flawlessly installed with makepkg and every AUR
helper. Is it a qualitative good package?

So, it's obvious that a valid bash is not the only quality criterion.
