[aur-general] Moving noip from [community] to AUR

Some time ago I adopted the noip package. It's a GPL client that
connects to what seems to be a commercial service offered by
no-ip.com. The free service offered by them has a hostname that
expires every 30 days.
I am a bit surprised that this was an official package in the first
place. When asking for opinions on IRC, there was support for moving
the noip package to AUR.

In addition to this, there seems to be several alternative clients,
with slightly different versioning schemes. Both here:
http://www.noip.com/download?page=linux and here:
This confusion generated a low volume of out-of-date flags.

It just smells bad. Moving it.
