The new AUR is awesome!  I have updated PKGBUILDer to work with it
earlier today, and am working to bring it to my new project, aurqt (a
desktop AUR client in {Py,}Qt; but it is broken on python 3.3 because
of 3rd-party libs).

But I think that two things need improvement:
1. I tried to insert the key ID (4 chars) instead of the fingerprint
(40.)  A hint (like <tt>gpg --fingerprint</tt>) would be useful.
2. Cannot unflag a package unless you’re the maintainer — sometimes,
flags are made errorneously and you need to revert it.
