I'm surprised this isn't percieved as a feature. With most other
package managers, especially dpkg/apt I couldn't naturally interact
because they internally did more than I was asking them to. On pacman,
the list of files a package comes with is that very list of files.
Anything past that point should be the result of an admin's actions.
Let's leave it that way.

BTW, I just entered a search term into the AUR front page [1] and
wasn't shown a search result. On the package page [2] that same "Go"
button is displayed too which has seemingly no reason... oh, "Go" in
that context only sets the language? What's the button with which I
get to packages I typed into the search field? Clicking one of those
ajax links doesn't seem to do much. I guess there's some form tag
dangling around which isn't interpreted by my browser* correctly or

Yes, you'll have to write the bug report for me or look at it right
away, sorry for being that lazy. :)

sillier by the month. They might move to scientific notation soon for
version numbers with the powers of ten growing that quickly.
