It's halfway there, it doesn't conflict with or provide theharvester
package, though that's something I was going to mention when I comment
about some changes they should make to the PKGBUILD (shouldn't be an
'any' package, binaries shouldn't be in /usr/sbin, etc.). I just
wanted to check that such packages are allowed before prompting them
to fix it up.

It's the latter, the package pulls from two different, unrelated
sources and merges them into one package. The only thing is, neither
source is otherwise available on the AUR or official repositories (as
far as I can tell).
