The guidelines for packaging do not change simply because a package is on the
AUR. If a package replaces another then it should include an entry in the
"replaces" array. Whether or not AUR helpers detect it is irrelevant. What
matters is that the resulting package contains the correct metadata and that
any repo that eventually includes it (official, user-contributed or even
private) behaves as it should.
