This would fail miserably though as soon as someone updates their
package without getting a new one from the AUR (which is kind of the
point of a -git package), and no matter what is in the pkgver field, it
will be updated. 

Also, what wiki page (and revision) did you see this about pkgver
needing to be empty? (I just want to correct whatever it is I put in
there that is wrong)
