[aur-general] UnMerge request mpv-player-git vs. mpv-git

I'm admittedly having trouble understanding the use of such a package
(over simply using -git libs, which, despite what you claim, seldom
break existing package — and if they do, well, stop using -git
packages in the first place). Is it useful to so many people that it
has to be on the AUR? The package had little activity at all.
Should we start having this type of packages for a bunch more apps?

Anyway, regardless of all that, "mpv-player-git" is a terrible name for it.
