Yeah, they mentioned that in the aur-dev conversation, among other ideas 
like IP blocking (which actually sounds good, except more than one 
person can have an IP, so I don't know how much that would work, unless 
there is some timeout period or something for the block) and repeatedly 
doubling intervals after successive flags that time out after an hour 
(which, while annoying, doesn't seem like an enough of a deterrent, but 
I could be wrong).

Well, not much to do except wait it out, I guess. I just can't remember 
which packages I have to update now.
